This research paper should demonstrate your understanding of the key issues and peer-reviewed literature related to your chosen sexology topic.
Please ensure you select a narrow scope for your paper. For example, focusing on a sexology topic as it relates to Australia or a topic that relates to a particular group or population. A narrow scope will assist you to produce a more focused paper.
Use headings to structure your paper. Write descriptive headings and sub-headings that guide the reader about the content that follows. If appropriate, your research paper may argue for or against a particular issue (e.g., the distribution of free condoms - so you would write your paper highlighting both the pros and cons of such a strategy). For other topics (e.g., sex trafficking, female genital mutilation) it may be inappropriate to take a positive position.
You are expected to not only present the relevant information, but to critically analyse the information you have sourced, drawing logical conclusion(s) based on your analysis to support your argument.
