Scientists use information from scientific studies to research and design experiments. Scientists
use primary, peer-reviewed, scientific literature to keep up-to-date on developments happening
around the globe. Background information is an integral step in the scientific research process.
For the ‘Environment, Ethics, & Human Health’ assignment, you will be writing a Primary
Literature Review. You will choose a main topic and one or more sub-topics and use primary,
peer-reviewed, literature to discuss your topic of choice. Once you have read the primary
literature on your topic and sub-topics, you will compile the information. The paper must be
written in your own words, you MAY NOT copy or quote any portion(s) of the literature you
review. Detailed instructions for the writing assignment are in a separate document on Canvas.

This topic proposal is your guide to get you started on the topic choice and outline process
which is needed for writing any good paper. Once completed, upload this worksheet to Canvas.
You will receive feedback on your topic choice and outline submitted. Please allow up to two
weeks after the due date to receive feedback.
