The library-based projects will typically culminate in a review paper that draws substantially on the primary literature. Feature articles published in Scientific American or American Scientist (some issues of these two journals are in Hedco 102) might be useful as models. The latter periodical also provides the model for citations. Final papers must:
• Be at least 15-20 pages (12 point font, double-spaced, with 3/4 inch margins).
• Contain at least 10 references, with at least 5 of them primary sources.
• Represent novel work on your part.
This guide will help you in research processes in Biology by providing guidance in finding, evaluating, and using a variety of information sources available through Armacost Library collections and beyond.
Consider submitting your work for an Armacost Library Undergraduate Research Award (ALURA).
In 2016, for the first time, we'll have two categories: for the STEM disciplines and for the Arts, Humanities, and Social Science disciplines.
Learn more about the submission process @ http://library.redlands.edu/alura. The most important piece of the application is your Research Reflection Essay. What are we looking for? Review the evaluation rubric. Meet with your subject librarian for guidance on writing an award winning Research Reflection Essay.
Submission deadline is March 11, 2016.
