Outline For Emergent and Infectious Diseases


The purpose of this assignment is to assist you in preparing for the final paper. You will create an outline of your final paper. Click on the following website link and review instructions on how to develop an outline: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/the_wri…. Click on the following link and review the document: Types of Outlines and Samples (retrieved from the website). Include references in the outline.

The outline should be at least 400 words. Note that actual information pertaining to your chosen topic must be included for full credit. For instance, do not state in your outline “describe topic,” but actually provide some basic information about the topic.

Format your outline according to the website provided above and format your reference list consistent with APA guidelines, as you did for the annotated bibliography. Note that as you work on your paper you may find that you will need to search for additional references. Submit the outline as a Word document.

The annotated Bibliography is attached as well

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
