Research Paper Draft
Instructions: First, submit your complete Research Paper Draft as approved by your GRST instructor on the Research Approval Form. Your Research Paper Draft must be eight pages of text (including introduction, body, and conclusion), cite at least eight sources, and follow a current format guide (Turabian, MLA, AMA, or APA) in accordance with your selected discipline. Submit the completed draft to your GRST instructor on Blackboard and to the Online Writing Center (OWC) by filling out a tutoring request form located on their website: www.liberty.edu/onlinewritingcenter. Select the FULL REVIEW option when filling out the tutoring request form for a draft review.
Your GRST instructor will provide feedback on the draft within a week and will return your paper so you can make your final, improved revision of your paper. Your instructor will score your draft according to the Research Paper Grading Rubric which is available to you in the Assignment Instructions folder of your GRST course.
You must submit the draft to the Online Writing Center to complete the third (or OWC Feedback) step of your research paper process. You will need to use their Online Tutoring Service (OTS) and fill out a Tutoring Request Form. This is a wonderful free service for all Liberty University Online students. The goal is for you to understand how to successfully use this service in the future, so if you run into computer trouble, don’t worry! Remember the Help Desk is available to you. Also, please read and follow the OWC’s guidelines first. Then, use the tutoring link on their website to submit your Tutor Request Form: www.liberty.edu/onlinewritingcenter. On the request form, be sure to include the real assignment instructions and rubric pertaining to your draft, not just the GRST requirement of 8 pages and 8 sources. That way, your tutor can provide the most specific assistance possible.
