Hypothetical Policy Paper in Cyber National Security
The paper must not be longer than 5 pages. Use 1.5 spacing, Times New Roman 12 pt font, and 1-inch margins. References can be added as a 6th page. Decision tree, any tables, and figures for sensitivity analysis can be presented in an appendix – use reasonable length.
For your quantitative analysis, you may use any decision-making software you wish, but you must copy your tree diagram into the same document as policy paper. It should be formatted to be readable and clean. No software other than a simple spreadsheet program is required.
For your qualitative analysis, research using scholarly sources is essential. This research can include, but should not be limited to, articles in scholarly journals accessible through Google Scholar, Searchworks or the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), magazines like Foreign Policy, recent news events and developments, and required or suggested readings for the course.
Please cite your sources in your paper using numbers in brackets (e.g. “Nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei join to form a new type of atomic nucleus .”) or use Word Footnotes and choose Endnotes to compile at the end. Use Arabic not Roman numerals. The reference section should use a formal standard.
