Research Paper and Presentation
Research Paper and Presentation: Each student will complete an academic research paper and presentation. The topic may be anything pertaining to business management. The research paper must be APA 7th Edition (not 6th edition), a minimum of 5 pages not including the title page, table of contents, abstract, or reference pages. There must be an average of two (2) different citations in each paragraph (excluding the introduction and conclusion). There must be Level 1 and Level 2 Headers. You must not cite an academic reference more than three (3) times and absolutely NO direct quotes (everything must be paraphrased). The minimum number of academic journal references that are less than 7-years-old is 10. Only academic journal articles that are less than seven-years-old are acceptable as references. The Power Point presentation must have your voice presenting the slides if we are 100% online at the end of the semester. If we are still in the blended class format, you will give your presentation to the class in the classroom. There should be 1 slide per page of your paper, not counting the table of contents and abstract. The reference slide does not need to have a verbal description. This is worth 20% of your grade and the quality, not quantity, should reflect it. The project is worth 200 points.
