RESEARCH PROJECT OUTLINE ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
You will complete a full sentence Outline for the second part of the Research Project.
INSTRUCTIONS
The Outline must include a thesis statement, the research questions/issues being addressed, how
much space will be allotted for each section of the paper, and a preliminary reference list of at
least 15 scholarly articles from peer-reviewed journals. All references must be less than 10 years
old. When the assignment is returned, read all instructor feedback in order to implement it on
future assignments.
What to consider as you prepare the outline:
1. What is the topic?
2. Why is it significant?
3. What background material is relevant?
4. What is our thesis or purpose statement?
5. What organizational plan will best support our purpose?
6. How much space is estimated per section?
*Also consider the elements noted on the Research Project Final Assignment Instructions
when completing your Outline.
Full Sentence Outline:
The full sentence outline format is essentially the same as the alphanumeric outline. The main
difference, as the title suggests, is that full sentences are required at each level of the outline.
This outline is most often used when preparing a traditional essay.
Thesis Statement:
Questions/Issues Being Addressed:
I. Man-made pollution is the primary cause of global warming.
A. Greenhouse gas emissions are widely identified by the scientific community to be
harmful (Smith, 2014).
1. The burning of coal and fossil fuels are the primary releasers of
hazardous greenhouse gases.
Full sentence outlines are often accompanied with an current APA reference list on a separate
page. Quotes within the outline must also utilize current APA format with in-text citations.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool. The tool
