Impact of Prenatal Health Care, Prenatal Smoking and Alcohol Drinking on Infant Mortality



General Guidelines on Writing Assignments 1. The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) is the required style guide for all written work. 2. A final report is
due for completion of this class, including the following elements: a. Signature Page b. Abstract c. Table of Contents d. Chapter 1: Introduction e. Chapter 2: Literature Review (a minimum of 25
sources) f. Chapter 3: Methodology g. Chapter 4: Data Collection, Analysis and Results h. Chapter 5: Conclusions and Recommendations i. References j. Appendices 3. The written assignment should be
in in the required template (Microsoft Word; double-spaced; size 12 font; with one-inch margins on the top, bottom, left, and right on all pages). 4. All assignments must be free of spelling,
grammatical and typographic errors before they are submitted for final approval. 5. Each written assignment should conform exactly to the page structure and format requested. In most instances,
this will require careful thought and editing on content. 6. Papers must be delivered via the course shell dropbox unless other arrangements have been made. 7. Preliminary drafts should be
submitted beforehand to allow ample time for critique by the instructor. Project reports are typically at least 25 pages long, not including the title page, table of contents, references and
appendices. Students’ written work should demonstrate mastery of public health terms, theories and concepts. All statements should be based on evidence and clearly referenced. 10. Student papers in
this course presume both research, and original and individual thought. Any source the student uses in the composition of the assignments/papers must be cited fully and accurately. The University
Code of Honesty describes plagiarism as “giving the impression that you have written or thought something that in fact you borrowed from someone else.” Any failure (whether accidental and/or
intentional) to follow the standards of scholarly accuracy constitutes dishonesty and will result in a mark of ‘F’ for this course.
