Research Paper Instructions:
1. The paper should be 5-10 pages, typed, double spaced, 12 point font.
2. Research should be gathered from both hard copy and online resources. (3 hard copy sources and an equal amount of collaborating internet sources)
3. Information must be properly documented since none of this is your information. This includes both in-body referencing and a work cited page.
a. In-body referencing is documentation of the source from which you get the information.
1) All information should have parenthetical referencing (author & page #) for a hard copy source; (internet source # that corresponds to the work cited page) for an internet source.
2) This referencing should be for every piece of information included in the paper. That means every sentence that you use from a source!
b. Work cited page -found at the end of the paper and only includes sources actually used within the body of the paper. (Work cited page does not count as 1 of the pages of the paper!)
1) Hard copy source to include: Title of book or magazine, Article name (if a magazine), author, publishing company, copyright date or magazine volume & date, and page numbers
2) Internet source to include: URL, date accessed, copyright date (if available), and date of last update
4. This paper should be written from the view point that either you or a member of your family has contracted this disease. This means that the entire paper should be written in either first (I) or third (he/she) person.
5. Items to be researched:
a. Microorganism description: for bacteria (shape, arrangement & gram reaction) for worm (structural description), for molds (hyphal color, & sporulating structure), and yeast (gram reaction, shape and presence or absence of a capsule)
b. How microorganism is differentiated from similar members of this genus.
1) Example Bacteria: How is S. epidermidis differentiated from S. aureus by biochemical tests?
2) Example Worm: What structures or eggs allow us to identify this worm?
3) Example Mold: How are sporulating structures or biochemical tests used to identify this mold?
4) Example Yeast: How is this yeast differentiated from other pathogenic yeast?
c. What are the symptoms of the disease?
d. How is the disease transmitted?
e. Type of sample received in the laboratory for identification?
f. What is the treatment for the disease?
g. What is the incidence rate of the disease?
h. Original question posed with topic answered
