Per APA format ensure when citing in the middle of a paragraph and then introduce new or additional information, then another citation is needed at the end of the paragraph so the reader knows where the new information came from. This is true for uncited paragraphs as well; also there needs to be an identified Conclusion and the best way to do this is to have a section title. This paper should not contain any personal opinions or any personal forms such as I or you or we other than in the Conclusion. There should be no personal experiences, or those of friends or co-workers. The only personal communication allowed is from experts and those must be cited properly (see APA Manual). Please research the topic (Criminal Profiling) and address that topic specifically. Write about the topic, not a portion of the topic or a wider general history.

The paper must have a minimum of five outside scholarly and/or professional sources other than the textbook. Scholarly sources are journal articles from actual journals, not journal-looking articles from websites. Scholarly sources are also professional textbooks or scholarly books, not popular books. Professional sources are local, state, and federal government sites. You may use other sources as additional sources. If you use websites, be sure they are professional and credible. Do not use websites that are advocacy groups, businesses, or forums. Newspapers, magazines, and news media are popular sources and do not count toward your outside source requirement; doctoral dissertations and masters theses are also not scholarly to this standard, however, any of these can be used as additional sources. Dictionaries do not meet the scholarly standard. If a site has information that is useful but is not as solid as required, see if you can find the information at a more reputable site. If not, then the information may be questionable. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of your paper. Most of the paper should be cited information. Quotes are direct verbatim and must be cited immediately. All factual statements and others work must be cited. That should be most of the paper as you are not using your own opinion. This paper must be a minimum of 2500 words.
