When you submit your paper it will be automatically sent to Turnitin and checked for plagiarism. It is important that you closely review your Turnitin report and similarity score. No amount of copying is acceptable (allowance for references, footnotes, and quotes). Quotes should not consist of more than 10% of your content. I am looking for your own thoughts in your own words so I do not want to see excessive cited material. However, cited references used to support your work must be properly cited in Turabian style format. Contact instructor with an explanation of a similarity score over 30% which may indicate plagiarism.
Please follow these requirements and format to optimize your grade points. This paper is due at the end of week 6 as indicated in the syllabus. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
