  • Body (Contains your discussion of sources and is organized thematically.)
  • Conclusions/Recommendations  (Discuss what you have drawn from reviewing literature so far. Where  might the discussion proceed? At least one page.)
  • APA-formatted References list
  1. Remember  to insert in-text citations (using the APA-formatted author-date method  of citation) throughout your narrative, and anytime the information you  provided did not originate with you, or is not common knowledge, and  anytime you use the ideas, facts, statistics or information from the  authors of your references. In-text citations are required.
  2. Please  see Section 3.03 of the APA Manual for the correct use of headings  throughout your paper. For example, Level 1 headings are centered and  boldface with uppercase and lowercase letters. 
  3. As stated previously, articles must be from peer-reviewed, academic journals. No books,  textbooks, websites (dot.com, dot.gov, etc.), newspapers, monthly or  weekly magazines, blogs, or the results of google-type searches.
  4. Reminder:  A scholarly journal is a research-oriented academic, peer-reviewed  publication with an editorial board that screens articles according to  the highest academic standards. There are tutorials available about  academic journals on the LU library’s webpage, for example: http://www.liberty.edu/library/defining-databases-and-journals/ . Also, see the Professor’s Improvement Suggestions document for additional information, and a list of prohibited sources. 
    • Remember–
    • If  the magazine containing the article is published monthly or weekly,  then it is not a scholarly journal. Scholarly journals are published  quarterly, or less frequently.
    • If an article does not have a named author, then it is not from a scholarly journal.
    • If  an article does not include a lengthy reference list citing other  scholarly articles, then it is not from a scholarly journal.
