Sources:  Class Material and Your Own Research:  The paper will be evaluated on how well you provide evidence describing the policy and supporting your analysis. If you are writing about a country & topic we have discussed, you should use class material and supplement it with at least three other sources that truly add something to our understanding.  If you choose a different country, you will need to have as many sources as necessary to complete the assignment.  Provide full APA format citations for these sources and make sure they are published by a reputable organization.   Provide citations: When using someone else’s words, use quotation marks.  When using someone else’s idea or providing information that is not general knowledge (including data), cite your source using APA citation format – in-text citations with a reference list at the end.  This lends credibility to your work and avoids plagiarism, which is presenting someone else’s words or ideas as your own.   Instructions for citation formats can be found here http://libraries.iub.edu/sites/default/files/APA_0.pdf (Links to an external site.) and https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/ (Links to an external site.) and https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/10/ (Links to an external site.)
