The research paper should be constructed in Word. The paper should be 15 (double-spaced) pages long, excluding pages associated with title pages or bibliography. In other words the body of the paper should be no less than 15 pages (1 inch margins – 12 pt. font – Times New Roman or Arial) in length.
The paper should be documented using an APA (in-text parenthetical) documentation style, with the following additional requirements: no executive summary, abstract, or outline. A paperback reference for APA would be nice to have, although there are online sources of information about APA.
The paper should be substantially based on at least three articles from professional journals (five would be better). You can also use other professional journals, such as the Journal of Economics or Marketing, the Journal of Entrepreneurial Management, the Journal of Management Information Systems, or the Journal of Information Systems. Either one, two, or three of your journal articles could come from professional journals in other disciplines such as these. The three principal journal articles referenced in the paper should be copied and turned in with the paper. In addition, feel free to include other research sources. You should have a minimum of five sources in total, but you may include as many as you wish. The objective of the paper, apart from the obvious coverage of the topic area, should be to INTEGRATE the information provided in the research sources. You should not go through a page and a half or two pages continuously citing the same source. In most classes, the assigned paper is longer. I would rather sacrifice some length and emphasize a good SYNTHESIS of the sources into a well-written, coherent document.
