Research Process

Suggested Steps

  1. Search the primary academic literature using library databases (Business Source Premier, JSTOR, PsycINFO) to gain background for your topic
  2. Select articles from the primary journals listed below on a single topic related to organizational behavior.  You must find and use ten (10) different articles from these journals!
  3. Integrate the material from your articles. You may also use books, magazines, newspapers, web-based source material, as appropriate.
  4. Your paper should be no more than ten typewritten, double‑spaced pages ‑ you must be concise. The ten page limit is for the actual text of the paper, and does not include the title page, executive summary, tables, figures, or references. Use American Psychological Association (APA) format for research citations. [See "Citations" tab above]
  5. Develop a concise class presentation around the material that you have researched.
