Scenario:You are an editor for Parker-Benson Publishing. However, you have completed a master’s degree and would like to publish an article for your resume as you look for a different job. In Weeks 3-4, the article acquisition editor accepted your proposal and agreed to publish your research report as an article.

Title page
Executive summary

Statement of the problem and/or opportunity
Scope establishing boundaries and limitations for your article
Appropriate background information (ex. historical data, relevant laws, definitions, etc.)

Research Methods

Primary research, including interviews and surveys, can’t be used because there isn’t time to process the Institutional Review Bureau’s informed consents and other paperwork that the Federal Government requires for academic research projects.
Conclusions drawn from the experts’ opinions and facts in the sources
Criteria for drawing those conclusions (evaluating options and alternatives)

Briefsummary of problem and/or opportunity

Back Matter

Illustrations are required for this assignment. The illustrations must be formatted, positioned logically in the article, and sized correctly so that they supplement the textual information without distracting the reader. Illustrations may be photos, charts, graphs, logos, etc. Create your own illustrations or borrow them from sources if you give credit to the original authors according to the APA guidelines and the copyright laws.
