REVISING SCHOLARLY PAPERS
Your Session Long Project for this course comprises writing an 8- to 10-page paper on a health science-related topic of your choice. However, you must do so in accordance with the steps outlined in each SLP assignment. This will ensure that you have applied the resources introduced in this course toward development of a scholarly paper befitting graduate-level scholarship.
An academic paper will typically undergo several rounds of revision before its author(s) submit the document/manuscript for peer review. The same care should be taken to work completed toward satisfaction of graduate degree requirements. With this in mind, the Case Assignment for this module provided an opportunity for you to apply the Revision Checklist ( http://writingcenter.unc.edu/faculty-resources/classroom-handouts/revision-checklist/ ) to your final paper.
This process should have resulted in a more refined draft of your final paper that you can now submit for my review and grading. Please ensure that all necessary revisions have been made to your final paper in accordance with the Revision Checklist.
Upload the refined draft of your final paper by the conclusion of this module.
Length: 8-10 double-spaced pages (excluding the cover page and the reference list).
References: At least eight scholarly articles must be used and included in the reference list.
Format: APA format is required for this assignment.

WRITING DIRECTIONS from Instructor – Case this is a personal paper that assesses your work based upon the SLP.. the directions are clear and provide a good example of a format you might chose to follow. But remember, formal writing is still required
SLP Finalize your paper.. this would be considered a short thesis research paper, one that could be published so be complete and thoughtful in your work.
There are many areas that need to be cited. so for module 4 you must fix this. here are just a few examples, when you state a fact you MUST cite it.. if you have many sentences in a row citing at the last one is not enough. You can write, the following data is from Smith (2018)… then provide it but then it must all be from that reference. The disparity of HIV in the United States on a racial basis is almost startling, given that many of the affected population are African Americans who represent 12 percent of the total United States population and account for 48 percent of the infected people. The rea the number of African Americans to be infected is eight times more likely than whites and two times as Latinos. The most vulnerable gender are black women, which stand at 16 times the rate in white women. Black gay men stand a 50 percent chance of getting HIV compared to 9 percent of white gay men during the course of a lifetime”
