Each student will identify an ethical issue in the criminal justice field and write an article about it. The topic is to be completely researched and the article length is dictated by the topic and publishers guidelines, but the article must be no less than 1700 words. Normally 2000 words are required for an article.
NOTE: The article is not to be a short story on your opinion of a particular topic. Your writing is to be a scholarly article that is based on extensive research. Any articles that are not written in the required manner will not be accepted. Do not write your article with less than 1700 words for their publication as it is not something that would be suitable for a newspaper column commonly known as the Letters to the Editor. This assignment requires a critique by each of you. See below information on critiquing of papers. NOTE: In Module 5, by no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT, you will post your draft to the Article for Publication Discussion Board located under Module 6 in the course menu. You will also submit your draft to the Assignment box. (This Assignment box maybe linked to Turnitin.) You can then review your originality report for potential plagiarism issues so you may address any that are identified in the report. This submission will not be reviewed by the professor for content. It is only for your review. Your critiquing partner will review your draft article and post comments on the Module 6 Critique of Article for Publication Discussion Board.
