Guidelines and Recommendations for the Seminar Paper


  1. Review the description of the Seminar Paper in the syllabus.


  1. Review the 4 criteria for the grading of your research paper in the syllabus.


  1. Make sure that you incorporate the 10 approved peer reviewed references into your paper.


  1. Make sure that 20 of the 25 peer reviewed references are from the last 10 years.
    1. I don’t expect you to understand the statistical analysis at this point in your graduate education, but I do expect you to understand what the dependent and independent variables are in each article, the issues being researched and the meaning of results summarized in the conclusion.
    2. If you have a question about information in a particular article, I’ll be glad to discuss that with you, but you’ll need to provide me with a copy of the article in question.


  1. If you haven’t purchased a copy of the 7th Edition of the APA publication manual you may consider doing as soon as possible.
    1. There is a sample paper on pg. 50 that I found very helpful
    2. Make sure you follow the style guidelines for the
      1. in-text citation reference style
      2. title page
  • running head
  1. use of headings and subheadings
  2. page numbering
  3. reference page(s)
  1. I reiterate that students who have relied on an online version of the APA guidelines generally don’t do as well as the students who refer to the hardcopy or online versions of the Manual.


  1. Don’t forget that following the APA is a relatively small % of your total grade. The largest % of your grade will come from the synthesis of the material assigned for class and the peer reviewed journals.


  1. Do not “stack” references. Instead organize the information by topic areas and integrate the information from your research and the assigned class readings.


  1. Avoid the use of quotes by paraphrasing and citing the information. The APA manual has a thorough explanation on how to cite and paraphrase information from your sources. Do not cite every sentence in a paragraph. If the information in the paragraph is from the same source then you only have to cite the reference once. Contact me if you have any questions about this.


  1. Before you email your paper to me
    1. Proofread your paper by reading it OUTLOUD.
    2. Have at least one other person who is working on a master’s degree or is educated beyond a master’s degree proofread your paper.
    3. Become comfortable with rewriting your paper. Become your own editor.


  1. In your conclusion, state what you have learned (In reviewing this research I have learned that..,.) and how particular findings are being or could be used to inform correctional practice.
