Selecting Your References

Assignment 2: Selecting Your References

Along the way in this module you will need to gather a minimum of ten (10) scholarly research articles you plan on using for your final research paper. APA-formatted literature reviews always include a references page. The references page cites every article you have mentioned in your literature review. To view a sample references page, view the sample APA paper in Doc Sharing, visit the Web site to view other sample papers, and consult your textbooks.

Part I

Based on the feedback you received from your peers and your instructor on your research/focal question and your search of the literature, finalize your research question, and submit it on page 1 of your submission.

Part II

Select at least ten (10) scholarly research articles related to your chosen focal/research question. These should be articles that you intend to review, critique, or include in some other way when writing your literature review/final paper.

Create a draft of an APA-formatted references page, including each of the research articles you have selected.

Note the following important points:

  • The references must be in alphabetical order.
  • References should be double-spaced.
  • Hanging indents must be used. (The first line of the reference is flushed left to the margin while all subsequent lines of a single reference are indented five spaces from the left-hand margin.

Part III

Include a title page in APA format with your submission.

Submit your paper to the M2: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Wednesday, June 4, 2014.
