Your final document should use a formal style - this means writing impersonally. Your work should be properly referenced throughout and include a reference list.
• Introduction Giving an overview of the aim and scope of the paper, including a brief review of the GDPR to set up the issues that the main text will explore. You can choose to focus on a particular sector if you wish.
• Paper selection. It should briefly describe your research approach (how you found the papers, and decided they were of sufficient academic quality to include in your main review), and include a table which lists the papers you have selected, identifies the key themes of the papers, and explains your assessment of their authority.
• The main text should be focussed around synthesis and analysis structured around the main issues raised in the papers. There should be sections which cover:
• issues with the definition of privacy,
• the relationship between security and privacy, and
• the governance issues raised by supporting privacy.
• Conclusions. Including the current research challenges that you have identified and recommendations to professionals, and likely developments in the next few years: eg the implications of the GDPR
You should use the supplied rubric as guidance on the marking expectations. Remember to bear in mind their relative marking weights. The FAQ provided on Moodle has resources and information to help you with the coursework.
The article will be marked online. Please take this into account when preparing your document. You should use a formal style - this means writing impersonally. Your work should be properly referenced throughout and include a reference list. (You are not required to supply a separate bibliography. A reference list will be sufficient.)
Front page should include: your matric number, the module id, word count, the coursework title. Word length: The target length of the main text is given above. It is suggested that your work should be near the upper limit; article of much less is unlikely to contain adequate content, which will reduce the marks available.
You may include tables and diagrams, the content of which are not included in the main word count. They can be used to justify and support the arguments in the main text; they cannot earn you marks in their own right.
The discussion forum on Moodle should be used to ask questions. The Module leader will be available to discuss your coursework before you start work on your proposal – there will be time allowed for this during the online and offline tutorial activities – so engagement is very important. Please avoid email queries if possible.
