In order to show understanding on network-related issues, each student is expected to complete a paper on a relevant network topic of the students choosing and
interest. The report should have no less than 15 pages, double-spaced and not counting the title page, table of contents, bibliography, or any figures. For a research
paper you should use a bibliography of no fewer than five sources that appear as references in the body. Your report should use headings and sub-headings to reflect
its structure. Please proofread your report carefully to ensure that it contains no spelling or grammatical errors. Use the APA format where appropriate.
Please also note that your submission may be checked by an automated system to ensure that it is not a duplicate submission in other courses and that it follows the
academic integrity policies. If your work is related to another course work, the content should be substantially (at least 2/3) different. You should also pay close
attention to crediting the words or ideas of others. For any citation, try as much as you can to rephrase the original words. When you have to use the original words
from other publications, remember to include in quotation marks. When you use the ideas from a publication, you should indicate clearly by citations, so as to make
your own contribution clearly separable from other publications.
A general structure of the final paper should include the following sections. Note the actual structure may vary depending on the topic area and the focus of your
1. Title of the paper
2. Abstract and key words
3. General introduction of the problem area
4. A concise problem statement
5. Solutions to the problem
6. Your critical review on the approaches
7. Summary and conclusion
8. List of references
