Abstract

Introduction

Include an introduction for your paper that introduces the reader to what the paper will discuss. Example: In this paper, a description of a potential research topic will be introduced along with highlighting key characteristics of the intended audience. Then, in order to reach the targeted audience, a description of a venue will be provided along with relevance to the research topic. Finally, the process required to submit as well as participate in the venue will be explored.

Topic / Question Title 1

In the second paragraph, begin addressing your first topic or question. This should directly align to what you stated you were going to talk about in the first sentence of the introduction. When citing sources, be sure to follow APA 6th edition. Example: As an educator and a practitioner within the project management profession, the importance of transformation that is occurring in the workplace, specifically the adoption of digital strategies and technology is becoming increasingly relevant (Sundararajan, 2017).

Topic / Question Title 2

Please follow the same pattern as above.

Conclusion

Here is where you summarize your work. The conclusion should inform the reader of what they just read. Example: As the field of project management continues to evolve, it will be important to capture the voices of participants within the profession. To do this effectively will require engaging research participants throughout the entire process. Methods such as co-constructive interviews and subsequent dialogue will ensure participants are actively engaged and their voices to be heard further shaping the professional abilities of students and future project managers.

The last item is the reference page. The reference list begins on a separate page.

References

It is critical that you know, understand, and apply the knowledge that APA requires that EACH reference cited in the text or body of your paper MUST appear in the reference list. Chapter seven in the APA manual gives you reference examples. Everything is double-spaced and there is a hanging indent.

You will need to use the APA Publication Manual to ensure that your reference list is correct. This information may be different than what you remember from your undergraduate days. Each reference cited in the text or body of your paper must appear in the reference list and each entry in the reference list must appear in the text.
