Research Paper The Department of Law and Police Science requires this course to include a major research paper as part of the course requirements. The topic of the research paper may be any topic related to any part of the course. In particular, it may be related to any of the following: History of Criminal Justice Criminology Legal Studies (not law, see below) Police Corrections If the paper is in the area of legal studies, it cannot be merely an exposition of some law or legal procedure. It must be one of the following: history of law, philosophy of law, comparative law contrasting at least two different legal systems, sociology of law, or psychology of law. Question: Can it be a revised paper from some past course or a paper being done for another course? Answer: Yes. But it must be your paper, not someone else’s. The teacher may use Turnitin to detect plagiarism. Format of the Research Paper: Title and Subtitle. The paper must have a title and subtitle which specify exactly what the paper is about. Together the title and subtitle should identify all the key concepts in the paper. It has become common to give subtitles in addition to a main title so that more "key words" can be included in the title and subtitle. This enables people who are doing searches using key words to find an article or book more readily. Create a title which identifies the key concepts and, if possible, the connection between them. Do not use a poetic, metaphorical or rhetorical title. For example, a bad title would be, "Finding a Life: Why Do Some People Become Police Officers?" A good title would be, "Police Career Choice Based on Compensation: The Role of Salary, Fringe Benefits and Pension in the Decision to Become a Police Officer." First Paragraph: The first paragraph of the paper must tell exactly what the paper is about and it must contain operational definitions of the key terms. If the title and subtitle have been composed correctly, all the key terms will be in the title and subtitle. Each operational definition must be two sentences in the format specified in the file on Operational Definitions, which is posted in Course Information. Start by telling exactly what the paper is about, then give the operational definitions. Each operational definition should start with, "In this paper…." Subsections: After the first paragraph, the paper must have at least five subsections. Each subsection must have a title which tells what that subsection is about. Each subsection must be at least one page long. The average length of subsections should be approximately two pages. Hence, the overall length of the paper must be ten pages, not counting the first paragraph or the reference list at the end. Use standard margins and 12 point print font. See the file on Social Science Writing Style. One of the subsections must relate the paper to one of the classic works in criminal justice which is in the textbook. This subsection must include at least two specific page references to the classic work itself, not to the introduction in the textbook. This subsection should also include at least one reference to some other work. Documentation: Any information or theory in the paper which is not common knowledge must be supported by at least one reference in the text of the paper. In most cases, some documentation will be required for each paragraph in the paper. A reference in the text of the paper answers the question, Where did this information come from originally? Do not cite secondary sources such as textbooks or references in articles. Cite the original sources. Proper textbooks and articles give the original sources of the information. All the information for a subsection cannot be from the same one or two sources. There must be at least three different references in each subsection. There must be a reference list at the end of the paper. The reference list at the end of the paper must contain all of the references in the text and none other. The list at the end of the paper is not a bibliography; it is a list of the references cited in the paper. If the original source has been translated or reprinted, the reference in the text will give the dates of original publication and reprinting, e.g., (Beccaria, 1764/2013). The reference in the reference list at the end of the paper will be in this format: Beccaria, C. (1764/2013). On crimes and punishments. In R. Panzarella & D. Vona (Eds.) Criminal justice masterworks: A history of ideas about crime, law, police, and corrections, revised printing (pp. 37-51). Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press. The official style for references for classes at John Jay College is the style of the American Psychological Association (APA), except for mathematics and law classes. The John Jay College library has a short guide to APA format for references. However, the APA keeps changing the style. The examples above are based on the Sixth Edition of the APA style manual. Style: 1. The paper must be written in formal standard English. Every error in English will reduce the grade for the paper. 2. The paper must be written in social science writing style. See the file on Social Science Writing Style; it is posted in Course Information. Every error in social science writing style will reduce the grade for the paper. 3. Do not quote. Do not quote, neither with nor without quotation marks. Paraphrase. In other words, put any information or idea into your own words and give a reference. See the rules about quotations in the file on Social Science Writing Style. The teacher may use Turnitin to discover if you are quoting either with or without quotation marks. 4. All references in the text of the paper and at the end of the paper must be in correct APA format. Deadlines: Deadlines for submitting parts of the paper are given in the syllabus. The first deadline will be for submitting the title, subtitle, and first paragraph. The second deadline will be for submitting all of the section titles and the one full section related to a major work in the textbook. Only the titles of the subsections, not the full text of the subsections, are due at the second deadline, except for the subsection relating the paper to one of the major works in the textbook. The third deadline will be for submitting a hard copy of the complete paper:
