Research Assignment #2: Literature Critique
Research Assignment #2: Literature Critique
Write a one-page literature critique on the individually assigned IE topic shown in the table below. You must use TWO peer-reviewed refereed journal articles for this assignment.
You must submit the literature critique in MS Word .doc or .docx file format only as well as the two .pdf files of your two peer-reviewed refereed journal articles any time BEFORE and UP TO the final due date and time via Bb only.
Formatting Instructions: The literature critique is a brief summary of two articles from ‘peerreviewed refereed’ journals. Critiques must be word-processed, single spaced, and one full complete page in full justification form. Also, you must have a margin size of 1.00 inch on all sides (i.e., where the top, left and rights sides are even) of your submitted assignment. Occasionally, your article may not fully reach the bottom margin due to the writing of your critique; thus, if this occurs, you must not leave more than a 1.5” margin at the bottom in any case. If necessary, write a longer summary! The only accepted font size must be 12 pt and Times New Roman font type is required. The paper should contain 4-5 well-written paragraphs with proper grammar and spelling. In the final paragraph, briefly discuss something from the article that really impressed you. Only the last paragraph can be written from the first person point of view, but not in any other location of the literature critique should 1st or 3rd person be used (i.e., do not use ‘we’, ‘you’, ‘I’, etc.). When using direct information from either article, be certain to use the proper APA in-text citation format ‘(Author, year)’. For rules regarding multiple authors, please refer to the appropriate websites indicated below.

Two proper APA bibliographic citation references MUST be used for this paper. These references should also appear on the second page of the paper below the ‘Assignment Name’. which lists the two peer-reviewed refereed references only. Although many reference styles exist, the only style that will be accepted in this class is the APA-style. The general format is shown below:
First Author’s Last Name, First Initial. Middle Initial., & Second Author’s Last Name, First Initial. Middle Initial. (year of publication). Title of the article where only the first letter of the first word in title or sub-title as well as proper nouns and acronyms are capitalized. Name of Journal in Italics, volume in italics (issue number in parenthesis and not in italics if known), first page number-last page number.
Pay very close attention to the details of the APA citation format (such as the location of periods, commas, use of italics, etc.)
