There are thousands of articles written within the past 5 to 10 years that will support your topic.
[On the search page, move down to the advanced section to select “scholarly peer-reviewed,” and you will need to input the search dates “From” 2011 and “to” 2021.

Use approved sources. One reference must be an article from the database. You may use substantiated websites (.edu, .gov,) or e-books from the library as your second source. You may use your textbook as a third source. You may NOT use .com websites.
At least TWO required, approved sources/references must be regularly utilized in the paper. One must come from the database. The other may be from a university (.edu) or governmental (.gov) site. You may use a book from a library as a second source. You may use your textbook as a third source.
III. Format and begin your paper
Format an APA Cover/Title Page for your paper (visit the Purdue Owl APA website to view a sample student paper and Title page)
Develop the essay describing and highlighting your topic and the research article(s).
When citing your research, always try to paraphrase what you have read (place information in your own words) and CITE the source that the information came from. Cite often to prevent plagiarism. Plagiarism (taking someone else’s words and claiming them as your own) will result in a zero grade and a visit to the Associate Provost’s office. PLEASE do your own work, paraphrase, and CITE liberally thorugh the paper. If you did not think it, CITE it.
Examples of an in-text citation, presented within the body of the paper:

Some ideas to consider for your essay:
What are the main details surrounding your topic? What are you trying to present? Follow an organized pattern of presenting information from start to finish. Stay on task.Present a very Strong Introduction & Thesis Statement in the initial paragraph. The paragraphs that follow should support your thesis statement.
Describe the journal article research you found in support of your topic. (Cite the source)
Do the results of the research study illuminate or add insight to your own topic? How so? (Continue to cite source any time you use a statement from your article, book, or website).
Conclusion: write a concluding paragraph that summarizes the topic you’ve selected and your closing thoughts.
