Information for this section should come from a reputable source like the World Factbook (maintained by the CIA) is a good place to start. Another government site to search for information: U.S. Department of State’s country information that also links to embassies. The use of government-maintained websites adds to the credibility of the information presented. Supplement the government research with articles from the library’s full-text databases. Steer away from reference books like encyclopedias or dictionaries and focus on information from periodicals. Do not copy and paste tables from sources.
International food and beverage research: country 2
Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like “I”, “we”, and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person. NOTE: failure to use the specific, required research with accompanying citations will result in reduced scoring (no higher than 75%) for all components of the grading rubric.
This is your 2-3 sentence conclusion. Remember this is the last thing your reader will hear.
