Part 2 – The Essay
Submission: Via Turnitin and hard copies to be placed in the GEB011 drop­box in the Wallace Building basement.
GEB011 Assessment Component: 40%
You will write a 1000 word essay on your chosen topic.
Your essay should be structured with an introduction, which contains an overview of the wider topic, a middle, which should describe in detail the observation/piece of technology/theory in the title and how this fits within the wider science, and a conclusions section. Your conclusions should include a statement on whether or not further discoveries are needed and are likely in your lifetime.
Essay writing tips and rules
• Written in the third person (no ‘I’)
• Your essay should include images, maps, or graphs, which are referenced to and used in the
text (remember, a picture says 1000 words – and no, that doesn’t mean you can just submit an image!). You can cross reference to your images/maps/graphs by giving each one a number (and caption) and referring to that ‘figure’ number. For example:
“… Figure 1 shows a map of the study area, and indicates that…”
“…The overall trend in the data is a decline from 1950 to 1990 (figure 1)…”
• Every statement should be justified and needed and should not just be a collection of facts. Don’t leave the reader thinking “and?” or “why?”; it should demonstrate that not only do you have a good grasp of the topic, but also that you can pull together lots of different sources of information and formulate your own conclusions from it.
• You should include references to peer reviewed literature that is relevant to your argument, and reproduce that information in your own words. PLEASE NOTE THAT SHOULD TURNITIN INDICATE A SIMILARITY SCORE GREATER THAN 20%, YOUR ESSAY WILL BE REVIEWED BY THE UNFAIR PRACTICE OFFICER AND A PENALTY MAY BE APPLIED. You should paraphrase other peoples’ written work, not quote or copy.
• Literature may include the use of key text books (check out the recommended reading), or may be found via on­line databases or search engines e.g. Google Scholar (just type ‘Scholar’ into the search bar), Web of Knowledge (which can be found at http://wok.mimas.ac.uk/), or looking through bibliographies and reference lists in key textbooks or existing articles.
• Every idea or concept that is not your own should be backed up by a citation. In general, you can approach this by one of three ways:
▪ It is widely accepted that … (e.g., Smith et al., 1991; Andrews and Peters, 2004) ▪ Sea­level during the previous interglacial may have been up to 5m higher than the
present­day (Fred et al., 2004), based upon studies of x and y, and therefore ….
▪ Based upon evidence from x and y…. Fred et al. (2004) suggest that sea­level, during
4
the previous interglacial, may have been up to 5m higher than the present­day. Therefore…
• You won’t be marked down for this if you get this wrong, so don’t worry, but as a useful hint, et al. is latin for ‘and others’, and since it is Latin it should always be italicised. It is also an abbreviation, and therefore, should be followed by a full stop. Furthermore, et al. is plural, therefore Smith et al. ‘have’, not ‘has’.
• Be consistent with your referencing style. You should provide a full reference list at the end of your work and you should use the Harvard Style or APA.libraries/subjectinformation/ and download the link on the right hand side of the page.
