financial economics field Using the knowledge that the student acquires during the course, the stude Business and Management

Using the knowledge that the student acquires during the course, the student will prepare an
empirical research paper that will be assigned by the instructor. Alternatively, with the
preapproval from the instructor, you have the option of writing the term paper in any topic
of your interest within the financial economics field, as long as you apply some of the
statistical and econometric tools covered in the course, especially multiple regression
analysis. The papers should not exceed 15 double spaced pages, not including cover page
and appendices.
• Papers are to be RESEARCH PAPERS. Remember that work that you use from other
authors MUST be referenced. Since it is assumed that you are not an authority on the
topic that you are writing, it is expected that this paper is an overview of many different
sources of information. These must be contributed to the author using the APA format.
• This is your paper and not the cut and paste of someone else’s work. The internet has led
to a false sense of what research is all about. Those new to research tend to think that it
means spending an afternoon surfing the internet and then an afternoon cutting from
material available. Keep in mind that the Internet is: (1) not quality oriented as it has
good materials and not so good materials, and the Internet does not know the difference;
(2) the Internet is NOT a sole source location. In particular, sources such as Wikipedia
are the works of individual submitters which are not reviewed. Thus while many entries
provide excellent information, some are fundamentally flawed or just plain wrong. Keep
in mind that the Boston University Library as well as your local, state and the national
US Library of Congress have extensive online services. USE THEM.
• The research paper must include a bibliography of information and works cited.
• The paper should be prepared using the APA writing style and guideline for references’
format. You must provide a bibliography, and all direct quotations and data sources must
be properly cited. The Department uses the APA style as to facilitate both, reading the
paper and understanding references without being cumbersome as some of the other
styles (such as Chicago or MLA). Students can download the student style guide from
APA Style® Help) web site
