Requirements for the Individual Midterm Report include:

  • Development of an 6 page (1400 to 2100 words at 350 words per page/average) of content per page, excluding the cover page, front matter (Table of Contents), Back matter (appendix items) and references. Please double-spaced your paper, as noted in the APA style guide. Use proper in-text APA citations as well as a full references section.
  • A minimum of THREE outside references are required for your work.  User peer-reviewed work (e.g., journals, conference proceedings, industry papers, etc.).  Peer-reviewed work refers to articles written by experts, which are reviewed by several other experts in the field before the article is published in the journal in order to ensure the article’s quality.  Please DO NOT use popular press items (e.g., Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, etc.), which are not aligned with academic work.
  • Use APA formatting in your presentation including in-text citations and references. Each reference must be used in your presentation and therefore linked to an in-text citation. Also,  any in-text citation must be accompanied by a corresponding reference listing.
  • AVOID direct quotes. Instead, paraphrase and cite (see APA regarding this). Remember, direct quotes are typically done for seminal research, so limit the use of quotes in your submission. In addition, provide an introduction and a conclusion in your paper. The paper must follow a logical flow, so working from an outline is strongly recommended.
