Unit 2 Discussion Topic 1


 

Integrating Viable Sources using APA

For this Discussion, you will conduct initial research for a persuasive proposal. Peruse these possible topics concerning business problems or use one of your own from your work.

First read about APA and plagiarism.

Then address these steps:

Step 1: Review APA format in the Academic Success Center, under Academic Writer. This information will also help to prepare you for the APA Quiz in Unit 3.

Step 2: Locate one viable source (see the Reading area) in the ABI/INFORM Complete database located in the Library (see Academic Tools) and post the APA formatted citation and accompanying reference for the source, a summary of the source’s content, and your plans for integrating the source into your final proposal. Your summary and plans should be approximately 300 words.

Step 3: Review two of your peers’ postings and provide feedback on their summaries and citations. If you note APA errors, bring them to the writer’s attention.
