Term Paper Writing Guidelines
In addition to developing students’ analytical and critical thinking skills, research skills, data and information management, and even time management skills, the main goal of writing term paper in this course is to apply the theoretical concepts and modelsof environmental economics to the real-life insights, policies, and decisions. The term paper will focus on a specific issuein the theories of environmental economics in the Canadian, more specifically in the provincial (Ontario) and municipal (GTA) context rather than addressing variousand general country-wide issues at the same time. It should start immediately with analyzing and discussing the given topics (see the Term paper topics). Your analysis, evaluations and critique,and explanations stressing how theoretical models and concepts are applied to real life would be more valuable. It is also very important to discuss the underlying theories, concepts and assumptions.
The term paper should be structured as follows:
The term paper should be in a range of 1500-2000 words(excludingcover page,references, and appendix)and should be typed in Times New Roman with 12 font-size, and double-spaced and should contain separate pages for thecover,references, and appendix, if necessary.
Figures and tables should be inserted in the text where appropriate. If you use material from the web and other sources, this should be cited and the web address should be included in the reference list.APA/MLA format is used for citation and references.
The Term Paper Topics

The term paper should be written in your own words. Sentences or paragraphs should not be copied from any sources written by others. According to the Ryerson Academic Integrity Policy 60, students will be penalized for plagiarism and will lose entire or partial marks.
