References in Your Paper
stated in your syllabus, " Each paper must have at
least 5 references with at least three references from
journal articles." Any time you use information
from a source, you must cite it; failure to do so is plagiarism.
Here are a few things to remember to include in your bibliography:
- Journal articles
should include author(s), year, title of article, name
of journal, volume and issue (or date if it is a popular
publication), and page numbers:
- Church, B. K., McMillan,
J. J., & Schneider, A. (2001). Factors
affecting internal auditors' consideration of fraudulent
financial reporting during analytical
procedures. Auditing 20(1), 65-80.
- Web sites should
include at MINIMUM, the title of the site, URL, and
the date you accessed it. If there are authors,
dates, or other relevant information, include that as

Print and Electronic Resources
searching for materials, try a variety of databases- ask a
librarian for suggestions based on your topic. Remember-
different databases will have different coverage, and will
look a little different. One good strategy is to try
to find one or two GOOD articles- once you've found them,
look at the terms they use, and try another search using those
terms. For more detailed information on finding full
text articles from business database, see 'finding
full text articles online'.
STARTED EARLY! If you can find it, we can get
it, but you need to start your research early. You might
find some really great stuff that is not available in full
text, or articles from journals that we don't have access
to. If this is the case, all you have to do is fill
out the online article
request form, and it will be sent to the WSU library for
you to pick up. These things might take a few
days or a week.
