process and into project planning. ASSIGNMENT DETAILS: Please attend to the following guidelines: 1) Prepare your report in APA format. 2) Literature Review should utilize outside sources substantially. A literature review is a
comprehensive narrative on the most recent scholarly work on a certain subject. Therefore, seven (7) to ten (10) scholarly or professional journal articles should be utilized for this section. Other sources (websites, blogs, dictionaries, etc.) may be used in support but do not count toward this total. Also, the sources need to be current research which means contemporary sources (no more than ten years old).
3) Paper must be typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, 10-12 pages. (Page count does not include title page or reference pages)
4) Properly cite all sources referenced and include a reference section. 5) Proofread the document carefully before submission!
