Select a topic related to the development and use of theory, investigative technique, and/or other aspects of serial murder. It may be a theory, a landmark case, a particular case that changed the course of the process/procedure used in serial murder investigations. I want you to be more analytical and thoughtful about all aspects of serial murder showing your ability to apply basic principles and theories, and discuss how certain theories, procedures, and techniques are used to better understand serial homicides. Topics will need to be approved by April 19, 2018. Plan on submitting a typed page describing your topic.
You may have an interesting idea about a particular case, or how the procedure has changed over the years. Whatever your choice of topic, please do not just regurgitate what is already known. Pull together divergent information and apply it to your idea.
You must use at least 7 peer-reviewed resources supplemental to your required texts and articles. You may use your texts as resources, and they must be included in your bibliography, but they will not count toward the final number of required resources. Other non-peer-reviewed source can be used, but will also not be counted toward your required 7.
Please do not rely only on the Internet. You must have a variety of scholarly, peer-reviewed reference sources. Popular Mechanics is not a scholarly resource. The resource must be peer reviewed, in an academic journal. This is not negotiable.
The paper must be in APA 6th style formatting. Be sure to properly cite all sources used both in text (known as parenthetical), and on the reference page. If you are unfamiliar with APA style formatting, please get a copy of the APA Manual, and use it to assist you in your writing. You can also make an appointment with the Writing Center and get lots of help. There are APA help items on the Writing Center’s website as well.
Papers should include a title page, and abstract (You should be able to briefly, and properly explain your paper. The abstract will help you develop this skill.). It should also be double spaced, font size 12, with a reference page. All features are according to the APA 6th guidelines.
The paper should be no longer than 8-10 pages, so you will need to be succinct in making your point, providing support material and drawing appropriate conclusions.
