This paper is to be a substantial manuscript that reflects graduate level effort. The body of the paper (excludes components such as the cover page, abstract, reference list, appendices, etc.) Only PEER-REVIEWED resources published within the past five (5) years can be cited. It should demonstrate the student's ability to gather and discriminate pertinent resources, the ability to SYNTHESIZE information from a variety of sources, the ability to apply new information to a topic, and the ability to correctly use the APA Reference Style.
The student must register for RADS 6883 each semester until the research paper is completed

RADS 5003 adheres to the MSU Code of Conduct. In particular, academic dishonesty, however small, creates a breach in academic integrity. A student's participation in this course comes with the expectation that his or her work will be completed in full observance of the MSU Code of Student Conduct. A student should consult the 2000-2001 Student Handbook for answers to any questions about the code.
When students submit their efforts (literature review, journal article critiques, and course content assessments) for grading, they are attesting that they have abided by this rule. By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a “limited right” in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course. The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes. Specifically, faculty may submit student papers and assignments to an external agency to detect plagiarism.
Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. If a student is found to have committed academic dishonesty, a grade of zero (0) may be given for the paper, quiz, assignment, etc. Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.
