Ethical Dimensions of Public Administration

Suggested Proposal Format for Term Paper

Your one to two-page typed proposal (with cover page) should roughly contain the following elements. Note:there are only 3 parts

1Cover page includes course data & an informative, interesting title followed by ‘Research Paper Proposal’. Retain a copy for yourself.

2Description of the proposed topic:(narrative, not outline)

--  What is the ethical dilemma? What ethical issues are in play?

--  Importance of the subject and questions to be answered.

--  Exactly how are public agencies and administrators involved?

--  What kind of sources will be used including scholarly  journal  articles and books?

3Attempt a rough outline; one that shows your plan for structuring the paper (maximum 1 page).

--  The outline should follow the standard format, i.e. I., A., 1.,2., 3., a., b.; II. A, etc. format. At this stage it can be very approximate. --- The idea is to encourage you to think through some kind of logical approach to the subject –with a beginning, middle, and end.

4Sample bibliography:  (Scholarly and documentary items that are relevant to your research and that clearly target ethics)

--  Articles, esp. those from administrative, ethics, & other professional journals. (At this stage note only a few samples)

--  Books (including ones that deal with the general relevant ethical problems or principles as well as those dealing with the particular public administration subject/issue in question)  

--  Other (documents, reports, interviews, surveys, etc.). World Wide Web sources should not constitute more than half your sources (unless they are on-line journals, books, or official documents).  The point – to show you have started to uncover
