Therefore, the report should include the following sections: Cover Page, Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Conclusions, Recommendations, References Page (in APA format).

In addition to this, you may use information that is available only within a company. All research sources must be properly cited via APA format.

If you include any graphics within the body of the report, you must compensate for the space used by these graphics to make for the equivalent of 5 complete pages of text. 
  • You must use 1 inch margins, double space (except for block quotes, which are single spaced), and use a font of Times New Roman 12 or Arial 10.
