Pose and answer a significant academic research question.

Write a report that summarizes the sources you consulted and states an answer to your research question based on those sources.

The research question should be a significant and interesting question to researchers in a particular academic field.

The report should be clear, focused, and organized, and it should state a definite answer to the research question. If any aspects of the answer are uncertain, however, the report should also acknowledge this. The report may speculate on how future research could best answer the research question. The report should be understandable to others in the same field or with similar interests.

The report should be approximately 2-5 pages long, typed, double-spaced, and with pages numbered, and should be e-mailed to the instructor in MS Word, WordPerfect, PDF, or plain text. It should clearly cite all sources consulted in a citation style that is appropriate for your field. It should also include a bibliography of the sources cited, and, if appropriate, the sources consulted but not cited. The report should be free of spelling, punctuation, grammar, and style errors.
