Outline for Paper
The term paper will require each student to demonstrate their knowledge and assimilation of investigative processes and crime scene processing theory, research, and practice, as presented in the readings and lectures. Students are expected to write one concise and succinct term paper of 10 double spaced pages of text without going over the 12-page maximum. (Note: A cover page, abstract page, and a work cited page do not count towards the 10-pages minimum paper length requirement). The paper shall be written in APA format and shall not have been previously submitted to any other instructor for any other course. These papers should synthesize major ideas and themes outlined in the readings and lectures and reflect critical analysis.
For this project, students will choose a contemporary investigatory method used by police and/or forensic scientists, using only articles from academic journals, official government publications, and reputable trade publications, to discuss in detail the entire criminal investigative process used in the method chosen, ensuring to incorporate major ideas and themes outlined in the readings and lectures.
EXAMPLE: A student may wish to write their paper on the use of mitochondrial DNA in sexual assault investigations, or perhaps witness/victim racial bias in viewing physical suspect line-ups.
In addition, historical papers, such as the OJ Simpson murder case, or a history of American prisons will not be accepted. Term paper topics are required to address a contemporary area if criminal investigations.

? What are the implications for theory, research, and practice?
? What are some important or useful concepts the author presents?
? How does the reading relate to previous readings?
? What are its strengths and weaknesses?
