You must cite at least ten (10) relevant peer reviewed journal articles, and 3 chapters from the Kramar textbook. You can cite other academic references such as books, conference papers, and book chapters but these will NOT be counted as part of the 10 journal articles.

Submitting All assessments must be submitted through the Moodle site. No email submissions will be accepted. All assessments submitted electronically through Moodle must be through the Student Portal http://my.cqu.edu.au • Failure to submit electronically will be taken as a failure to submit and therefore a zero (0) score will apply to the specific assessment.

Plagiarism Copy detection software (TurnitIn) is used in this course and work found in contravention of the copying and plagiarism rules will be investigated. Penalties apply in the case of proven instances of copying, plagiarism and academic dishonesty. Please check the following links to know more about TurnitIn: http://turnitin.com/en_us/training/student-training/viewing-originality-reports http://turnitin.com/en_us/training/student-training/about-originalitycheck

TurnitIn is only a tool and judgement needs to be used when you view your Originality Report. TurnitIn does not make a judgement as to what is referenced properly, it highlights the non-original material in a piece of work. You should use the similarity score as a guide only and must then check the originality report to determine whether or not changes need to be made to the assessment.

Required Students must familiarise themselves with the following policies and procedures at http://policy.cqu.edu.au: Assessment of Coursework Policy; Assessment of Coursework Principles; Assessment of Coursework Procedures
