Research Paper: (25% of your grade)


It is time to pack your bags because you are headed on a “virtual” journey to a governmental research institution. You will be selecting a leading governmental research institution (you can see a list of top 25 leading governmental organizations below). The institution’s main website will be the focus of your tour. After you have spent time fully exploring the website, you will write a 3-page paper (exclusive of title page or bibliography) that addresses the following elements: an introduction with a thesis statement, a brief history of the institution and its significance, an analysis of any primary sources that exist on the website (or in a physical archives associated with the institution), and a discussion of any issues that the institution is facing today. Also, address the rationale for government sponsored scientific research, and make an argument for where scientific innovation is strongest: governmental, private, commercial, or educational institutions.

Included in your analysis will be at least 3 peer reviewed or scholarly sources that help you assess the significance of the institution and its history. These sources need to be found in the APUS library.
