Overview

Throughout your graduate program, you have written a variety of documents; memos, academic papers, reports, presentations, etc. Through the use of these multiple styles (media) of writing, you have been prepared to write this professional paper. Writing an effective, well-presented, professional paper (or report) is an essential skill for the professional public administrator. The main purpose of a professional paper is to inform the audience as clearly and succinctly as possible while providing credible and persuasive support for the conclusions and recommendations made in the paper.

Keep in mind that how you present the information in your paper is almost as important as the information itself. The writer should take into consideration the audience for the paper and present it in an easy-to-read, organized, logical manner that is professional in its presentation. For example, Stimson offers this advice for making tables reader-friendly:

“Tables should always be composed so that a reader can pick one up and understand its content, without having read the text. That means it must be fully self-contained, depending on nothing that is explained only in the text. The opposite is also true; a reader should be able to skip the table and understand the analysis completely from the text …

[For instance,] The title should convey something to the reader about the logical role and meaning of the presentation, what is being tested and how. The reader is asking, ‘Why am I looking at these numbers?’ And the title should answer that question. Titles tend to err on the side of being too short, of not saying enough so that readers can figure out what the numbers mean … [Also,] Abbreviate nothing [in your table verbiage].”

  • Review the assignment instructions and the rubric. Your paper must address all required elements.
  • Review APA formatting and citation requirements. All citations and your reference page must adhere to APA guidelines.
