The project abstract is a formal document, not a slip of paper with a few vague ideas on it about what the student thinks would be interesting to do. In order to receive approval for a project, the student will present a proposal outlining the following:
An annotated bibliography is a bibliography in which each entry includes a description of the entry’s content and the role it might take in the research. This description is not a copy of the entry’s abstract.
A proposed table of contents (outline) for the thesis. The table of contents should include a title and a specification of chapters and sub-sections.
The project should begin with a substantial amount of library research. The description of this research should involve a clear exposition of the problem or research area, an annotated bibliography, and an outline for conducting the research.
In mid-October, the student will reach an agreement with his/her advisor about which chapters are to be completed as a prerequisite to satisfactory completion of the first semester of Senior IS. These chapters must be submitted by the date given on the timeline later in this document. A completed chapter is not an outline or a draft, but a chapter that has been through at least one review by the advisor.
The I.S. text, source files and results are provided on CD to the advisor before the oral defense. An html document containing the author’s name, graduation date, advisor’s name, I.S. title, and project abstract is provided to the advisor before the oral defense.
