Research Paper Instructions
You will write a Research Paper on a topic relating to business ethics. You will research what is being said in the academic literature about the issue and what the secular worldview suggests is relevant in the comtemporary business environment. You will then research the Bible for information related to the topic and identify what a Christian or follower of God should consider important related to the topic under consideration. Compare and contrast what agrees between Scripture and the secular thoughts and what may differ between the two.
Your paper must be 8–10 pages and double spaced, not including the title page, abstract, and references pages. You must include 8–10 scholarly references in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible. You must use your textbooks as sources; other acceptable sources are journal articles from peer-reviewed journals, theoretical texts, and the Bible. Citations must be in current APA format. As this is a Research Paper, it must be written in third person.
You will choose a topic and write a rationale for that topic. Final approval must be received from your instructor.
You will also create an Annotated Bibliography. The Annotated Bibliography must be in current APA format, and a 100-word description (of the reference itself and its contribution to the paper) must be included. The Annotated Bibliography due in Module/Week 3 will not be part of the final Research Paper due in Module/Week 8. The final Research Paper will have only the regular references section.
