- Unit VI Research Paper Outline
By now, you have had the opportunity to review research topics regarding falls in construction, select one, and briefly reflect on the topic. In order to stay on track and continue making progress on the Unit VIII Research Paper, prepare an outline with the major headings or topic sentences. An outline is a great way to provide organization for papers and projects. For this assignment, it is not intended for you to write an accident analysis or investigation. You may use an accident(s) to support your research, but it cannot be the focus of your paper. Your outline should include the following:
- cover page,
- the topic,
- one paragraph that describes the importance of the topic, and
- at least four major headings in outline form. (You do not have to include more than the heading.)
APA rules for formatting, quoting, paraphrasing, citing, and listing of sources are to be followed.
You do NOT have to commit to the details of your outline until the Research Paper is finished. As you continue to research the topic and draft the paper, the organization of your thoughts (i.e., the details of the outline) may evolve. That is expected and acceptable. To organize those thoughts, it is a good idea to begin with an outline.
Use your own words, and include citations and references as needed to avoid plagiarism.
