TOPIC: Research and Acceptable Scholarly Sources
THREAD: Post properly formatted APA references for two journal article sources that you will use in your literature review next week. Include a quick mention of the topic and a short defense of why you want to use these two sources. Imagine that if you do not defend your use of them well enough, you will not be allowed to use them. How are they relevant and useful to your topic? What value or benefit do they provide your research proposal? Make sure they are both scholarly journal articles. While many books are acceptable sources, this is a good time to practice using the JFL website. Do not include any books, magazine articles, book reviews, or websites. There is no minimum word count, but do not go beyond 400 words.
Choose threads by two of your classmates and answer these questions:
1. Are the APA references formatted correctly?
2. Are the sources scholarly in nature? (You may need to visit where they were found to determine this.)
3. Do these sources seem relevant to their topic? Explain your answer.
There is no minimum word count, but do not go beyond 150 words for each reply.
