Each student is required to select a topic for research. The topic must be relevant to this course (and preferably
of personal interest). Students may choose from the range of topics covered in the course, or may select a topic
that interests them but falls outside of this range. However, an important consideration in selecting a topic for
this assignment is that it must facilitate the assessment or development of policy recommendations.
Introduction (10%): Your introduction should be a kind of mini-outline for your paper that tells the reader
what it is about. This should include an introduction to the topic, a statement of the problem, and what you
will be covering. The last sentence of your introduction should also contain a transitional ‘hook’ which moves
the reader to the first paragraph of the paper.
Discussion of Challenges (40%): This is the body of your paper, where you will thoroughly assess your selected
topic. You will need present a particular form of cybercrime or the criminalization of some form of cybercrime,
including a clear description of your selected activity and its background. This presentation of the issue must be
your own (i.e., not taken directly from another source), but may be informed by the assigned readings, other
academic sources, legal cases, or current events. You are required to incorporate at least five scholarly
articles in your assessment. Scholarly articles are generally based on academic research, are peer-reviewed, and
appear in academic journals or books that are published by academic presses. Although the use of other
resources (e.g., some websites) may be used at the instructor’s discretion, students should make every effort to
incorporate scholarly research in this assignment.
Discussion of Solutions (30%): Discuss some of the ways that the identified challenges could be improved
through policy to better address the issue you are examining. This may include potential partnership,
cooperation, resource sharing, and laws that could/should be implemented. You may cite current policy
initiatives, or feel free to recommend your own.
Conclusion (10%): Your conclusion should summarize what you have written in your paper. Specifically, your
conclusion should a) restate your main idea(s); b) summarize the subpoints of your paper; and c) leave the
reader with an interesting final impression.
Formatting/Structure (5%): Your paper is expected to have an appropriate flow with natural transitions and
continuity. You are to include a title page that has an appropriate title and your identification
information. Also, you are to include an APA style reference list at the conclusion of your paper. If you are
unsure of how to do that, please consult me.
Grammar/Spelling (5%): The content of an assignment is important; however, the content is irrelevant if it is
not able to be understood by the audience. Care should be taken to properly articulate your content with
appropriate grammar and spelling.
