this essay.

Articles to Use for the Essay

 

For this essay, you will select four articles on a topic of your choice. The articles should be on the same topic but feature different perspectives, opinions, or conclusions about some aspects of the topic.

 

For example, if you are majoring in cybersecurity, you might locate four articles about the need for improved training for employees on mobile security issues. The four articles might take different angles on the topic, perhaps even disagreeing in some respects.

To use another example, if you are majoring in criminal justice, you might locate four articles on the CSI Effect. The articles should take different perspectives on the topic. Perhaps one or two of them say that the CSI Effect exists and one or two say that it does not exist. Or perhaps all agree that it exists but they all take slightly different approaches to addressing the problem.

Organization for this Essay

 

You will write an introductory paragraph with a thesis statement. Your thesis statement will demonstrate what the various sources say on the topic.

You will also have various body paragraphs that show synthesis. In synthesizing sources, you will divide your paper into themes.

For example, let us assume that you find four articles on the need for improved training for employees on mobile security issues. In this situation, assume that the four articles emphasize different issues. One emphasizes the costs of data breaches to companies. Another emphasizes reasons that employees do not practice safe cybersecurity practices. Another discusses methods for training employees. Another mentions costs of training for such initiatives.

You might divide the paper into two categories:

  • Reasons for implementing a training program
  • Methods of and costs involved in implementing a training program

After developing the body of your essay, you will want to write a strong conclusion. Remember to summarize the material developed in the body in the conclusion. You might also consider calling for further research on the topic in your conclusion.

Point of view

 

For this essay, you will use third-person point of view.

Please do not use first person point of view (e.g., “I,” “me,” “we”) in writing this essay.

In addition, please do not use second-person point of view (“you” or “your”) in writing this essay.

For example, instead of “Smith argues that, as a director, you have a duty to coordinate cybersecurity efforts…” you would write, “Smith argues that directors have a duty to coordinate cybersecurity efforts…”

APA Style

 

The paper should be formatted in APA style. The Week 3 link “APA 7th edition example student essay”. In summary, you should observe the following:

  • Use one-inch margins.
  • Double space.
  • Use size 12 Times New Roman font.
  • Include page numbers.
  • Include a title page.
  • Include a “References” page on which you list the four articles in APA style
  • Do not include an abstract. This paper is not long enough to warrant an abstract.
