The review draft is the next step of this project. You will submit a version of your term paper for review. At this stage you should have a nearly complete document. It should include two major parts. The first is a detailed background, giving the theory and hypotheses you are working on, previous work in the field by other scientists and questions that remain unanswered. The second part is your detailed research plan. This is the work you are proposing to carry out, including specific reference to how the work tests your hypotheses.
Papers should be about eight pages, double spaced, standard font. The bibliography should be formatted properly. Use the line numbering function with continuous line numbers from the beginning. Papers should have the following sections: 1) Summary (a one paragraph abstract, briefly explaining the background, methods and the importance of the project); 2) Background (several pages, including information like the underlying scientific hypotheses, theories and predictions of the subject and an exhaustive summary of work that has already been done on this subject by other researchers); 3) Scientific Approach (several pages detailing what methods you will use to test the hypotheses and explore the theory laid out in the background. Be as specific as possible in terms of experimental design and research plan); 4) Interpretation (about one page summarizing your findings and describing the potential results of your experiments and what that means about the hypotheses you tested); 5) Conclusions (a brief paragraph emphasizing why your work is important, how it will advance theory and why the funding agency should support it). Grading criteria for this section is timely submission and inclusion of all sections. I will only be grading your content in the final draft.
