A Note About Papers Papers are intended to challenge you to show that you can apply the concepts, discuss relevant examples, and present your response in a concise but academically rigorous paper. While additional research is not required, exceptional papers will integrate relevant information and examples from external sources (with sources cited in correct APA format).
