Papers should be 5 7 pages long, not including a title page or bibliography. In addition to containing your thesis
statement, the introduction should also inform the reader about what will follow in the remainder of the paper.
Let the reader know what major points you will address in making your case. Think of the introduction as
providing a road map for the reader. The reader should not be surprised at the destination where he or she winds
up when the paper ends! Papers should begin with 2 3 introductory paragraphs that contain a thesis. The rest of
the paper should be devoted to providing support for your thesis statement. It may be helpful to organize the
paper using substantive headings.
The paper should end with a conclusion that restates your central thesis and reviews the evidence. Conclusions
are also an opportunity for you to make predictions about the future developments concerning your topic. Please
do be sure to include your recommendations. That is, what should be done with regards to nuclear proliferation.
The paper should have a bibliography containing at least six sources. All citations should be in APA style.
