A concept briefing is a short research paper over your exploration of a concept. The purpose of a concept briefing is to inform others about your topic. Your report should include a definition of the concept, explanation of its purposes and implications and examples.
Your CB can be broken down into six components:
Abstract- This should be a brief description of the information your paper will include.
Introduction- Your introduction should introduce your topic or concept and lead into the rest of the paper
Definition- Definitions should be clear and concise.
Purpose and Implications- In this segment you should cover why your topic/concept exists, how it is used, and its benefits and limitations.
Examples- These should be real world examples of your topic or concept in action.
Conclusion- Your Conclusion should tie your paper together.
The Concept Briefing is in a modified APA style format. Although citations are APA style, there are various differences to acknowledge between a standard research paper and the concept briefing.
