Assignment 3 – Research Paper
An inquiry-based research paper of 1500-2000 words. Choose a topic from the list below. These are broad topics and you will need to find a narrow focus within them. Your paper should have at least five (5) academic reference courses. This should not include your textbook, Wikipedia, Brittania, Encarta, or any other online dictionaries or other very short non-academic Internet entries. You have access to online academic journals through the University of Manitoba library system. This is the best place for you to begin your search on your chosen topic. JSTOR is one online example through the UofM library system that has a lot of resources that may be helpful as you research. If you do not know how to conduct online research, please visit the library and ask for help from the reference librarian. Your paper should be submitted through UMLearn in the corresponding Assignment Folder.
Please choose from ONE (1) of the following topics:

We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.
Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.
After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.
