Most classes have a 2 paper requirement per course. Please be sure to address the following requirements when completing your papers: The cover page and reference page/s are not included in the page requirement or word count of 5-7 pages for this assignment. These should be in addition to page requirements. Papers need to be formatted in proper APA 6th Edition style. Each paper requires a minimum of at least three outside peer-reviewed sources for your references. Acceptable/credible sources include: Academic journals and books, industry journals,  and the class textbook.   You could use credible business website sources in addition to the peer-reviewed required sources, but avoid Wikipedia and Google. These are academic papers that need to include scholarly research. Using your textbook is required as well to demonstrate that you have read the required material. According to  (Links to an external site.) PLAGARIZE:  transitive verb  (Links to an external site.) : to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own : use (another’s production) without crediting the source intransitive verb  (Links to an external site.) : to commit literary theft : present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source With this said, it is very important to show backing for your thought, so if you are summarizing/paraphrasing another’s work, cite that work, or any work that shows backing for your thought directly after you have written it.  Each paragraph starts over when citing, so remember that citing in one paragraph does not cover your reference requirements for your whole paper.  Also, if you quote more than 3 words in a row that are exactly the same as your source, be sure to add in quote marks around those words, then add the page or para# with the rest of the reference citation at the end of the quote mark.  Your APA 6th Edition guide is an excellent resource.  It is highly recommended that you own one.
