Academic Research
Academic research and papers must meet certain standards of quality recognized by the academic community. What constitutes quality, academic research?
Primary sources written by experts in the field of study
Secondary sources supported by research in primary sources
Credible sources (experts in the area of study)
Relevant research (materials are pertinent to the area of study)
In graduate work, the use of peer-reviewed journal articles (journal articles reviewed by recognized experts in the relevant field of study) is required.
Educational and Government websites may be appropriate in some cases but should be evaluated carefully. What sources are not acceptable for academic research and referencing?
Encyclopedias
Wikipedia, other wikis, or blogs
Websites and other sources that do not provide quality researched materials—that is, the site does not employ credible sources to support the information in the document)
All research must be documented according to APA standards (see guidelines for avoiding plagiarism) and reflect professional, academic protocol.
The purpose of the APA Reference Page is to assist you in developing research analysis skills including: critical thinking, writing, and literature research skills. The reference page should include the following information for each source:
o Name of the article, including the complete citation
o Summary/abstract of the article – annotation. Sometimes, it is helpful to ask yourself the following
questions in synthesizing the information: ◦   Who is the author?
 ◦   What was done? For example, was it an experimental study investigating the interaction of
short term memory and attention?
 ◦   How was it done?
 ◦   What were the major findings?
