This paper will give you the chance to explore one topic of your choice about globalization in

greater detail. Your paper will be organized around a central question. The question could be that

same as one of the issues discussed in class, or it could be one that you develop on your own.

The following topics are just some examples:

 Does global urbanization lead primarily to undesirable consequences?

 Should the World continue to rely on Oil as the major source of energy?

 Is the threat of global warming real?

 Is the International community adequately prepared to address global health pandemics?

 Is the global economic crisis a failure of capitalism?

 Is social media becoming the most powerful force in global politics?

 Will China be the next Superpower?

 Is religious and cultural extremism a global security threat?

All references cited in the text should be listed alphabetically by first author at the end of the

paper under the heading References.

Citations in text: Use the author-date system as follows:

 Jensen (2000) suggested that…

 Jensen and Cowen (2000) found…

 …as summarized in Richards and Jia (1999).

Multiple authorship citations in the text: Use the full citation for up to two authors but abbreviate

to et al. for three or more authors:

 Narumalani et al. (2002) investigated

 Hodgson et al. (2003) concluded that…

Abbreviated citations must appear in full in the reference list.

Direct quotations in the text: Should be page-referenced:

 (Jensen, 2000, p. 45)

Reference list: The editor assumes that all references are complete and correct. If authors appear

more than once, arrange entries chronologically and substitute the a 3-em dash for the name after

the first entry. Do not number entries. Do not abbreviate journal names. Books and journal

articles in foreign languages should be cited in their original languages. Use the following entries

as a guide:
