Provide logical transitions from one pertinent area to another. It is through these transitions that the reader begins to understand the larger picture.

Topic:The impact of data surveillance on people’s privacy

The evidence survey paper requires analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of information on a well-defined content area.

Part I: Introduction:

1. Begin with a brief (3 – 4 paragraphs) introduction to the area of interest to focus the reader’s attention on the issue and background of the problem.

Part II:Main body

1. Outline themes: Then review each of the pertinent areas that must be explored to gain an understanding of the many facets associated with the subject (so, what are the major points on both sides). Provide logical transitions from one pertinent area to another. It is through these transitions that the reader begins to understand the larger picture.

2. Analyze the evidence. Synthesize the evidence into themes — DO NOT discuss your articles sequentially. Within this analysis, make sure to
• distinguish between assertion (opinion) and evidence in the studies
• identify strengths and weakness of the studies
• identify relationships among the studies
• identify major trends or patterns in the results
• note how the reviewed articles relate to your topic
• point back to specific evidence in your paper to justify your statements.
(this section will include approximately 2 paragraphs per theme)

III. Summary and Conclusion: After discussing each of these pertinent areas, write a conclusion that provides closure for the reader. The summary section should present the key points that resonated from your review of each theme presented. Then your conclusion should state which side of the issue is best supported by the evidence you collected and why. (not to be confused with your opinion of which side is correct.) (2 – 3 paragraphs)

You should also:

1. Cite your sources properly using APA style. In text and on the reference page.
2. Use proper grammar and spelling.
3. Should be coherent and readable.
4. Must be you own work. Do NOT cut and paste or otherwise copy anyone else’s thoughts unless you quote or paraphrase it and give attribution through citation.
5. Be 6-8 pages double-spaced in times new roman 12 point font. (the References page, abstract page and title page do not count toward the total page count).
6. Use 8 sources, 4 of which must be scholarly, peer-reviewed. If you chose to use a data source, only 1 may count towards your scholarly sources.
