Ive ways ethics have influenced organizational culture.

These are instructions from the Professor:

The length is up to you, but a paper less than 11 pages in length (the body of the paper, including the abstract and the body of the paper, not including the reference section) will be viewed as not acceptable. I expect you to be able to build and maintain a proposition about your topic for the sufficient number of pages to demonstrate your understanding of the topic, and how your proposition applies. The term paper MUST be in strong APA style (American Psychological Association Style Manual 5.0, available in book stores, on-line and at your library). Note: Spelling and grammar count. And when I say that you must use the APA Publications Manual, I mean you MUST use it. It provides information related to title pages, punctuation, headings, references, citations, etc.

There must be a title page, abstract page, body of the paper, and finally, a reference page.

NOTE: 90% of the sources for the content of the paper must come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals which may be retrieved from Troy s library locally, or via the on-line databases. A good starting place on-line is ABI-Inform, sometimes known as Proquest. Also, EBSCO Academic is another good one. The remaining 10% may come from acceptable business magazines, or magazines related to the topic such as Fortune, BusinessWeek, Wallstreet Journal, etc. Note: You may NOT use Wikipedia, or other similar on-line sources, although you may use the on-line sites for those business magazines, newspapers, etc. I would expect to see AT LEAST 12 sources.

Very Important!!!:
Per the professor
1. Logic: Are your arguments logical. That is, if you are trying to make a particular point, do the sources you provide, do the sentences you write lead in that direction? I ve read papers where the author wanted to make a point but the way s/he wrote the sentences, or quoted certain sources these actually contradicted the point s/he was attempting to make.
2. General content and flow of paper: Was the paper, in my mind, well-written? Did it have good flow? Did it make good points? Yes this is subjective but, that s the nature of the beast. I ve read, literally, thousands of academic papers, tens of hundreds of student papers. So, I have an understanding of what a  good paper is. You will not be held to the standard of a  professional academic paper, but I expect the paper to be well-written.

*Note: if you are making assertions in the paper (e.g.,  many believe that&  ) then make clear it is either your belief, or if it is the belief of others (see e.g.) cite them. For example,  many (e.g., Smith and Jones, 1999) believe that& 
**Final Note: Read the syllabus carefully regarding plagiarism and how I treat it regarding the paper. Do NOT just lift material verbatim from a source and then copy/paste it into the paper, un-cited. That will cost you badly. Do not just copy/paste a page or two of a source s material into your paper and place a source at the end of that page or two, with a source. That will still cost you. Here s why: If you are using verbatim material then you must  quote it (and, note have a quotation that is multiple paragraphs long is not acceptable, either). If you plan to use material from another source, copy/paste it into an MS-Word page, and then reread it, and, THEN, try to rewrite it in your own words. Once you have done so, copy/paste what you have re-written (it s called paraphrasing) into your paper and THEN, cite the sources. Paraphrasing is not just copying a source s material verbatim and changing one or two words. Again, that is NOT paraphrasing and is not acceptable.
