A07: My White Paper

White Paper: Your Research Thesis

The time has come for you to produce a White Paper on your chosen research topic. For Thursday you’ll owe me a post which, like my sample White Paper “Why We Still Have Polio,” will be work-in-progress toward an actual paper, and will organize your thinking for your benefit and the benefit of early reviewers such as me.

Use the sample polio eradication white paper as a model for your own work. We’ll examine it in class today to clarify what yours should contain.

Publish your work as a new post in the A07: My White Paper category. Title it “White Paper—Author Name.”


  • Study the sample White Paper, “Why We Still Have Polio.”
  • Produce your own white paper based on the research you’ve done so far on your chosen topic.
  • Be certain to include essential sections: The Topic Background, Counterintuitive Note, Topics for Smaller Papers, Current State of the Research Paper.


  • DUE THU MAR 01 before class.
  • Customary late penalties. (0-24 hours 10%) (24-48 hours 20%) (48+ hours, 0 grade)
  • Research Process category (10%)
