As we have discussed in class, the
guidelines in pages 4, 5, and 6 of your course syllabus should be read again thoroughly before you begin researching or writing your paper.
The research paper must utilize APA format in terms of
Citations, Margins, Reference Lists andRunning Heads. The inclusion of an Abstract can be a meaningful addition to summarize or introduce the paper but it is optional. Methodology, Results and Discussion sections are superfluous because they are only applicable in research studies and since our APA paper is not a research study there is no methodology to describe and no statistical results to illuminate or discuss. The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences [CSBS] can help you master APA Style:
Scholarly sources means: peer reviewed
journal articles and
books by scholarly authors. A
masters thesis or
doctoral dissertation are also scholarly sources. Scholarly also means that your source has a specific page number and this means that you cannot use online sources unless they are
paginated. Without specific page numbers, you cannot identify and describe where the quotation was found.
PAPER STRUCTURE USING SECTIONS
As of this moment in the semester, you have superior academic class performance (or intend to have superior academic performance at grading time) in all areas listed in the course syllabus meaning:
(1) you have received solid grades of A (not A-) on at least two written exams and
(2) you have attended at least 80% of all class sessions and
(3) you have documented superior class participation with an email each week.
After reading everything in the syllabus on pages 4, 5, and 6 about the research paper, you want to insure that your APA paper is superior. So in order to get an A in the course you need a
13 page APA research paper with 10 separate scholarly sources (separate means outside the primary text). If you are planning on writing about a specific subject in motivational psychology such as
CHARLES DARWIN AND SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST here is what your subject headings might look like:
I. General History of Evolutionary Psychology and its Relationship to Motivation
II. History of Darwins Survival of The Fittest Theory and its Relationship to Motivation
III. Biological Correlates in Darwins Survival of The Fittest and their Relationship to Motivation
IV. Psychological Correlates in Darwins Survival of The Fittest and their Relationship to Motivation
V. Sociocultural Correlates in Darwins Survival of The Fittest and their Relationship to Motivation
VI. Spiritual Correlates in Darwins Survival of The Fittest and their Relationship to Motivation

RESEARCH PAPER GUIDELINES
The APA Literature Review Paper can be on any topic in Motivational Psychology. The instructor
will allow students some latitude in choice of your paper topic. References for the paper cannot
be any of our required texts and all references must be paginated, scholarly and peer-reviewed
which generally means your references will be of three basic types: (a) scholarly, peer reviewed
journals; (b) a dissertation or a masters thesis; or (c) a scientific book written by an academic
expert from a Tier 1 or Tier 2 level research university. Any other type of source is not
acceptable. Some examples of unacceptable sources are: non-academic sources, unreliable or
invalid sources such as Wikipedia, publications that are non-academic such as online
newspapers, online magazines, online blogs, online chat rooms or discussions online, websites
or any non-paginated source or reference. Academic citations should make it clear where the
reader can locate the quotation or source. In general, there should be at leastbone literary
citation for every page of written content. A superior paper for letter grades in the A categories
below will require three basic elements written in APA Style:  a Title Page;  a 13 page
Review of the Literature; and finally  a Reference Section that includes a minimum of 10
sources. Nothing else should be included. The number of written pages in Review of the
Literature and the number of scholarly peer-reviewed paginated sources in the references are
very important criteria in paper evaluation. The research paper criteria for all letter grades are
Letter grade of A requires a MINIMUM of 10 references and 13 pages (not including the title
page or reference section pages)
Letter grade of B requires a MINIMUM of 7 references and 10 pages (not including the title
page or reference section pages)
Letter grade of C requires a MINIMUM of 5 references and 7 pages (not including the title
page or reference section pages)
Letter grade of D requires a MINIMUM of 3 references and 7 pages (not including the title
page or reference section pages)
The paper must be word processed and double-spaced using a 12 point font [no larger and no
smaller] with one inch margins all around. The due date for the paper is the 11th week of the
semester and is listed in the calendar pages in the back of this syllabus.
CSUN maintains strict policies in regard to plagiarism which is defined as intentionally or
knowingly representing the words ideas, or work of another as your own work in any academic
exercise. Papers for this class will be submitted electronically on Canvas and the assignment
will automatically interface with the Turnitin website which will scan each paper for plagiarism
and provide the student with a report approximately five minutes after the
paper is uploaded to Canvas.
1) The strategy more effective for imperial power was for a ruler to be seen as kind and just. If a leader could set an example for how best to act, his people would loyally follow, emulate his benevolent nature, and pay tribute with little to none fight. For example, the Persians were more accepting of local indigenous traditions, and encouraged different cultures and religions. Cyrus is known as being a great and kind ruler- freeing the people of Juduh from the Babylonians and, “encouraging them to rebuild their temple (Video: Persia).” This fostering of knowledge and different ideas without fighting over who was right or wrong allowed for a society with good communication, trade, and plentiful schools of thought. On the other hand, the Assyrians harsh rule created resentment in those they defeated, or those outside of the “yoke of Asshur.” This resentment would eventually lead to their downfall as their system was overthrown by a coalition allied with the Babylonians. Now, one could argue that Persia, just as Assyria fell and that technically, Assyria did last longer; however, Persia’s political context at the time of their demise furthers the argument that ruling with benevolence is more beneficial for all parties. During the 5th century this, “benevolent image, memory of the oder of the Persian Shaw was altered after conflict and war broke out between Persians and Greeks… image of the Persians in the West became increasingly viewed in an adversarial light (Video: Persia).” Of course, following this discourse, their empire fell as challenges with the Greeks and invading armies arose. As soon as their image of benevolent emancipators fell, they became more subjected to conflict and attack- further proving that their initial strategy- perhaps best emulated in King Cyrus, was what provided their successes in communication with others, trade facilitation, and military efforts.
2) The Israelite interpretation of justice faces some conflict. In the Death Of Moses passage, it is implied that because Moses served God, his death was just, despite not being rewarded for his labor and dying directly before reaching the promise land. However, then, God speaks to Abraham and his mind is changed about what is just- negotiating his way from, “fifty innocent within the city (WW Ch.5)” to his final conviction, “I will not destroy, for the sake of ten (WW Ch. 5).” Here lies an implication that maybe the divine’s sense of justice is not all knowing and that perhaps the human judicial instinct is something truly novel to our species. There seems to lie two schools of thought. The first being that doing what is right means following God’s order no matter what (as is seen with Job approaching all of his misfortune but continuing his faith and being rewarded for it in the end). And the second seems to exemplify that there is no divine justice, and thattrue religion is doing what is right regardless, best emulated in the Book of Job’s analysis, “others believe God’s words imply so system of divine justice and that authentic religious faith requires human righteousness in spite of this fact (WW Ch.5),” and in the decision of God’s to make Gob suffer despite his proven loyalty. It was clear that they had a sense of what seemedobjectivelyright or wrong based off the lists of rules written down, including the Proverbs. The question seemed more to stem fromwhere that right and wrong ideal came from. Man or God?
3) Looking at the Egyptian view of justice, we see a clear similarity to the Israelites. Earlier in the course, we looked at Hammurabi’s code, a grand list of rules similar from those listed in the Torah. Both were extensive in reach and handed down from a “higher being,” who we assume knows all and is capable of making a list reflecting an eternal and objective right versus wrong. However, even earlier, in theEpic of Gilgamesh, the vengeful god Ishtar kills Enkidu, which Gilgamesh and the reader both see as bad as well as threatens to do awful things that would effect everyone, “I will smash the doors of the nether world… I will raise up the dead eating and alive So the dead will outnumber the living (Epic of Gilgameshpg. 3)!,” suggesting that god’s are capable of malpractice and are flawed beings with greater power. This far beyond contrasts with the ways in which the Israelites present the 10 commandments: as a list of perfect rules presented by a perfect God. Where justice once came more from within, now we see the emergence of divine justice as a way of keeping rules and people in check.
