Please review attachment below. Assignment is simple for someone who knows about CS. PLEASE note, only ONE article is needed no older than 2014. Student needs by Friday.

Attachments:CSC 570 Computer Networking Principles (Fall 2015) Research Literature Report Guidelines Report Due: December 11 (Friday) 11:59 p.m. Definition of research: “careful or diligent search” (excerpt from Merriam‐Webster’s dictionary) Choosing a research report topic/article 1. Use UIS Library’s IEEE Xplore (see Appendix A) to search for a computer networking topic that you are most interested in. For example, you can use the search function by typing in keywords (or advanced search), or the browse function by selecting a particular journal/magazine title. The followings are two high quality publications: a. IEEE Network (magazine); publication number: 65 b. IEEE Communications (magazine); publication number: 35 2. Then choose one article that you like the most and feel most comfortable to study (e.g., if you are not good at math, do not choose the ones with many mathematical equations). This article can be an IEEE journal paper, conference paper, or magazine paper. However, it has to be published recently (year 2014 – 2015) and approved by the instructor. 3. The article/topic should be decided (and approved) by November 4 (Wednesday) so that sufficient time can be allocated for reading this paper (and maybe its references) and writing your report. Writing the report Comprehend the research paper and write a report in your own words. This report should consist of the following two explicitly separated parts: a. Part 1: Summary (500 – 1000 words): Based on the paper, explain what the research issue is and why it is important. Then describe how the research issue is solved according to the paper (and/or other reference articles) and what the conclusions are. If the paper’s authors mentioned about their future work, summarize in this Part 1 (not in Part 2). b. Part 2: Future work (500 – 1000 words): Usually a research paper tackles a particular research topic. Based on your own ideas, depict the future development of this particular research topic. You should fully utilize your critical thinking and analytical skills to demonstrate your innovative thoughts (e.g., integration of theories in a meaningful way or proposing groundbreaking ideas). Your ideas and thoughts need to show technical depth (the more the better). (Note: Hardware or software implementation details are not necessary.) Report format and requirement  Use Microsoft Word (or PDF) for the report with the following document layout: o US letter paper (8.5” × 11”) with all margins (top, bottom, left, right) set at 1”. o Single column, single line spacing o Font: Calibri or Times New Roman (Size: 12)  The first page should include the paper’s title and all team members’ names and UIS email addresses (in the format of “LastName, FirstName, Email”). (Note: No credits will be given if the name and email address are not on this first page).  Citations/References: List all the references at the end of the report with proper citations in the text of your report. The reference and citation style should be one of the followings: – IEEE Citation Reference ( – ACM Citation Style (‐style‐toc/) – APA Citation Style (  Figures and tables (if any): It is strongly recommended that all figures and tables be placed at the end of the report. They must be clearly labeled and with captions (e.g., Fig. 1. UDP throughput). It’s allowed to copy figures or tables (but not texts) from the original papers. Team work Students are encouraged to form teams to collaborate in writing research reports. The main reason is to promote team work and productive discussion on new ideas and future work. Each team can consist of at most 4 students, and all team members will receive the same grade for this assignment. Forming team or not is individual student’s choice and responsibility. The instructor will not assign team members. Students may choose to work alone. (Note: Having teamwork or not will have no impact on how the report is graded.) Submission  Reports should be submitted electronically using the Blackboard system (a submission button will be created before the due date).  Each team should choose one person to submit only one report on behalf of the entire team. Grading Criteria  Quality of the report. – For Part 1, research issues & solutions are summarized clearly with proper citations/references. – For Part 2, innovative ideas and thoughts are expressed clearly and technical depth is shown.  Similarity index from anti‐plagiarism tools (e.g., – It’s acceptable to have a 10% (or lower) overall similarity index. – The instructor will not do a “pre‐submission” anti‐plagiarism check for student reports. If reports are written from scratch based on comprehension (not copy‐and‐paste), the similarity index will be less than 10%. – If you have a account, do not upload your report to Turnitin as it would result in a very high similarity index when the instructor checks your report later. Important notices: Anti‐Plagiarism  Write the report in your own words. Submitted reports are subject to anti‐plagiarism check (e.g., Turnitin, see Appendix B). Therefore, students should study the research articles thoroughly and then write the report from scratch (never do copy‐and‐paste from the original articles, or from reports submitted in the past, or from any other sources).  Do not lend your reports to others. Do not borrow/buy reports from others. If two or more reports show up with high similarity among them, all of them will receive zero points for this assignment.  The following documents provide effective techniques to avoid plagiarism: – Avoiding Plagiarism (‐ content/uploads/sites/22/2013/03/AvoidingPlagiairism.pdf) – Paraphrase: Write it in Your Own Words (  Direct quotations from articles are strongly discouraged. If you do use them, they will be counted in the similarity index. Appendix A How to Access UIS Library’s IEEE Xplore 1. Go to 2. Click on “IEEE Xplore” (you may need to login). 3. After you logged in (e.g., seeing the logo of ACM Digital Library or IEEE Xplore in the browser), your browsing/search can begin. Note: UIS subscription of IEEE Xplore includes all articles (full text) of IEEE journals & magazines, and some articles in conference proceedings. The publications strongly related to this course are: a. IEEE Network (magazine, highly recommended); publication number: 65. b. IEEE Communications (magazine, highly recommended); publication number: 35. c. IEEE Internet Computing (magazine, recommended); publication number: 4236. d. 2014/2015 INFOCOM (IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications). e. IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (journal). f. IEEE Wireless Communications (magazine). Appendix B Sample Result from The following screenshot shows an example of anti‐plagiarism check result from It indicates that this student report has an overall similar index of 30%, where 6% comes from source #1 (red color), 5% comes from source #2, 4% comes fromUPON COMPLETION OF THIS PAPER, PLEASE SUBMIT TO I would prefer that the answer not be posted online. You can submit a dummy answer and I will issue full payment. I have had issues with the partial answers being online. Thanks for your help!
