AMN404 Readings in IMC/Assignment 2 – Literature table

AMN404 Readings in IMC/Assignment 2 – Literature tableInstructions:
You are required to produce a table of a selection of the key journal articles that you have now located that contribute to your chosen topic and help to address your statement of benefit identified in Assignment 1. No textbooks or conference papers.

No abstract, introduction, discussion or summary sections are required. However, you do need to re-state (or refine) your managerial / academic statement of benefit at the top of the table. An example of the table format is attached, where you will see the key headings for each journal article – these are:
• Author(s) and year of publication
• Is the journal article: i) conceptual, ii) empirical (quantitative), iii) empirical (qualitative), iv) a case study, or v) an industry report
• Research design (how was research conducted)
• Research Focus/brief indication of key variables tested
• Key findings or outcomes (in results section of paper)
• Brief statement of how the article addresses your managerial / academic statement of benefit.

As a guideline you should allocate 25-40 words per journal article used in the table. Usually this table examines around 8 – 10 journal articles (which should extend your pre-reading from assignment 1), and ideally they should be key articles that really support the topic that you have selected to do. Use the example table provided, so that you can provide the necessary information in a suitable column format (landscape format). Use single line spacing also so that you dont get masses of pages in the assignment.

Reference List (portrait format – can set up a separate attachment to the assignment): Provide a reference list of the articles cited in the table using Harvard or APA referencing. Use portrait format so that reference list is easy to read.

enclose a copy of the marking criteria with your assignment (do not staple it to your assignment).

Feedback procedure
The supervisor will provide feedback on the first assessment item for a clear direction of the final review. The supervisor may provide verbal feedback and advice on the progress of the final review report for its improvement but will NOT make any correction on the draft report.

See additional information on next page regarding academic policy.
Academic Honesty
QUT expects students to act honestly in assessments. The issue of plagiarism or academic misconduct is taken seriously and students are reminded to ensure that assessments submitted represent their own work.

ensure that you sign the academic honesty statement on the Assignment Minder coversheet. For more information consult the QUT Academic Integrity Kit and QUT Library Resources for avoiding plagiarism.
Updated Late submission policy

Late submission policy; Assessment submitted after the due date without an approved extension will not be marked and will receive a grade of 1 or 0%.
If special circumstances prevent you from meeting the assessment due date, you can apply for an extension.
If you don’t have an approved extension you should submit the work you have completed by the due date and it will be marked against the assessment criteria.
