Please read the following instruction very carefully, and you MUST remember that this is a "scholarly essay" that means the essay should rely exclusively on SCHOLARLY SOURCES. Purpose: This assignment enables you to build on the analytical and communication skills you have worked on in previous assignments as you investigate a topic currently under examination in your field of interest. In this formal research paper, you will perform a series of tasks, including establishing the history of a pertinent scholarly issue, summarizing the key points involved in this topic, using specialized diction, and offering your own perspective by synthesizing current research with your fresh findings. Methodology: This essay should rely exclusively on scholarly sources. Keeping in mind the audience for scholarly work, the emphasis should be on treating a specialized issue for a specialized audience rather than addressing a group of laypersons. Look for a methodology in the scholarly literature that you can implement in your research. Likewise, the tone of the work ought to be aimed at academics, eschewing sensationalism or generalizations. Avoid having bias or conclusions built into the question, although a hypothesis may be warranted as you begin your research. When the need arises to take issue with previous research findings—even when the topic stirs emotions--one¡¯s treatment of other scholars ought always to be collegial. Also, scholarly articles account for the history of the issue at hand, usually by citing previous key articles in footnotes so that fellow researchers can follow the trail of ideas themselves. While scholars needn¡¯t justify the importance of their topic to those uninterested in academic debate, good articles do emphasize the unique aspects of their own scholarship, articulating early in the piece precisely how this fresh evidence contributes to the field. Therefore be careful to foreground your perspective as the most prominent even as you rely heavily upon secondary sources; one accomplishes this largely by taking care to construct paragraphs around argumentative topic sentences featuring one¡¯s own analysis and bringing in other scholars to prove the point being made. Task: Develop an appropriate research question and In a thesis driven essay, research this issue and report your findings by positioning yourself within the critical dialogue. Select a particular journal and prepare your article with this venue in mind. Be sure to note the manner in which articles published in this journal handle particular topics and prepare your piece in a similar manner. Be sure to rely exclusively on scholarly sources (which may include interviews with researchers at USC or elsewhere). In order to reach minimum passing requirements, the finished draft should cite a minimum of "six journal articles and/or book chapters published by respectable academic presses." This paper must strictly adhere to MLA or APA or Chicago guidelines. Include with the final draft a submission letter to the journal you might send this article to, explaining briefly its relevance and asking for their consideration. This letter must be properly formatted as well. ----------------------------------------------------------------- I also include my research proposal as well. I hope this will help. Various studies have examined the causes and the effects of the global financial crisis in 2008, but most of them primarily focused on America and Europe. Only few focused on East Asian economies (Korea, Japan, and China). That is perhaps because the region is geographically the farthest from the United States, and the East Asian countries are still regarded as rather small and developing economies. However, East Asia has recovered the most quickly from the crisis since mid 2009, and, led by China, now it became the strongest and the healthiest economy in the world. My study, therefore, will examine how the East Asian countries overcame the global financial crisis so quickly and achieved such unbelievable economic growth in various ways since then. (This paper must include a variety of economic policies-fiscal and monetary policies-implemented by the countries` governments at that time and analyze their effects. Also, there must be comparisons and contrasts of those policies between the US and the East Asian countries during the crisis. Please include the overall mechanism of the high growth of those countries, and there should some data analysis as well such as graphs, tables, hypothesis testing, and etc. Finally, you can freely add any good evidence that fits the topic.) Thanks in advance. Please write a very good paper b/c this is really important to me. Considering the level of my school (the University of Southern California), my professor has a high expectation from me, so please keep that in mind as well, and work hard on this! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
