APA format is the official style used by the American Psychological Association and is commonly used to cite sources in psychology, education and social sciences. APA format may seem difficult, but it will become easier once you familiarize yourself with the basic rules.APA format dictates a number of specific guidelines for in-text citations and references. In virtually all instances, citations that appear in the text of your paper should be listed in the reference section.

Avoiding Plagiarism:Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s work as your own. If you use another author’s words you must attribute the work to its original source. If you borrow an idea from, or directly quote from, another person’s work, cite the source of that idea or quote. Phrases borrowed word-for-word from another author must be placed in quotation marks and followed by the page number from the original source. Cite a source even if you don’t quote directly from it. Paraphrase with care. Inadequate paraphrasing can be another form of plagiarism, even with documentation provided. Author References: Before we create reference sections for your psychology papers, we should check out examples of references for books, articles, and other sources. The structure of the reference varies somewhat depending on who authored the source and how many authors are credited. For every entry in your reference list, provide the following four elements, to the best of your ability, in the following order (a) author by last name & first initial, (b) publication year, (c) title information, and (d) publisher location and name. If the work is an Internet resource, give the full retrieval date and the URL or database as…...

... Benefit of the new public management There is a lot of benefit can be defined in the government that establish New Public Management (NPM). Firstly NPM attempted to diminish the role of the state and make the managers in various agencies become more responsive to be a political leader. Second, it aimed for greater efficiency through the use of private sector management techniques. Third, it focused on the citizen as a customer and service recipient. (Michael Hess and David Adams, 2007) As the major benefit can see that government activities have to moving from centralization to decentralization.

...C8057 (Research Methods in Psychology): Writing Laboratory Reports Writing Lab Reports & APA Format Structure and Content of a Laboratory Report This following provides a brief overview of the structure and content of various elements in a laboratory report, based on APA guidelines. The APA publication manual can be referred to for more detail. The purpose of a lab report is to communicate research in a clear, systematic and standardised way. Primarily, a lab report should communicate the following things: → Why did I bother? Why did I do this experiment and why is it an interesting contribution to science? → How did I do it? How did I carry out this research (this should be detailed enough so that the experiment could be replicated precisely)? → What did I find? What were the results of your study? → So What? What do your findings mean in terms of your hypotheses and what theoretical contribution do they make? IMPORTANT! The advice that we give you in this handout is not inflexible, it is a guide! For example, when we say that the title should be fewer than 15 words, the world will not end if your title is 16 words. So, please use your common sense. In case you don’t have any, the snail of sense will appear to give you some advice.

...Every person and every business or organization has their own set of morals and standards to live and work by; their code of ethics. The American Payroll Association (APA) is no different. As an organization, they have their own code of ethics that each member of their organization pledges to uphold; to work by. Ethics is a subject concerned with virtue; meaning to have excellent and well-chosen habits. It could be considered a study of how individuals (or in this case, organizations) should best live. With these thoughts in mind, the following is the Code of Ethics for the American Payroll Association: 1. To be mindful of the personal aspect of the payroll relationship between employer and employee, and to ensure that harmony is maintained through constant concern for the Payroll Professional’s fellow employees. 2. To strive for perfect compliance, accuracy, and timeliness of all payroll activities. 3. To keep abreast of the state of the payroll art with regard to developments in payroll technologies. 4. To be current with legislative developments and actions on the part of regulatory bodies, insofar as they affect payroll. 5. To maintain the absolute confidentiality of the payroll within the procedures of the employer. 6. To refrain from using Association activities for one’s personal self-interest or financial gain. 7. To take as one’s commitment the enhancement of one’s professional abilities through the resources of the American Payroll......

...ESTABLISHING A COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS PACKAGE LEONARD ANTHONY 3085841 Questions I would have to consider before establishing compensation and benefits package are; what is the purpose of the business I am in? Is it a high turnover industry? Is the industry targeted employees targeted for short-term employment? Am I in the peoples business or is my business predicated on the performance of employees? Once those questions have been answered, I would be able to establish a compensation and benefits package. For this paper I will take the later that my industry or field does experience turnover but it consist of employees that are committed to the company and looking for long term employment. The first things I would have to consider are my direct (cash) and indirect (benefits) compensation package. My direct compensation package would consist of salary, hourly wages and bonus. Factors that would affect my direct compensation package are supply and demand, labor unions and the company’s ability to pay and its productivity and government regulations according to (Montana & Charnov, 2000, p 222). Supply and Demand dictates the availability of qualified people within the area to do the job. If the economy is doing well then their will be great competition in attracting qualified candidates to do the job, this means management would have to pay a higher dollar amount to qualified candidates. If the market is slow then there will be a surplus of qualified and......

...Midterm 2 By Gabrielle Campbell Asian American Pacific American Studies (APA) 200: Introduction to Asian Pacific American Studies #87358 Instructor: Joanna L. Rondilla, Ph.D. November 5, 2013 Campbell 2 When there is light shed on the history of the native Hawaiian people some can not help but agree with what Haunani- Kay Trask is taking about in her book “From a Native Daughter”, because the American people just looked at the Hawaiian Islands for themselves not in the interest of the Hawaiian people. Their interest got to the point that the United States annexed their islands. The Hawaiian people were not being helped or taken care of, but they were people being imperialized. This imperialization was recognized by the United States though did they do anything about it and learn from their wrong doings? The idea that the Hawaiian people needing help is a thing someone should laugh at, for before Captain James Cook came to explore there islands the Hawaiian people were a flourishing society. In the words of Trask “he brought diseases that ravaged my people until we were but a remnant of what we had been on contact with his pestilential crew”. From this moment in time there society as they now it will fall, they have become weak in there very soul. When America found out that the English went to Hawaii and brought disease they suddenly became very interested with the island and wanted to dominate the sandalwood trade. This is when the Jehovah witnesses came......

...Employee Benefits Employee benefits is very important benefit that every employee should be looking at when it comes time to search for a job. Many companies offer a lot of employee benefits, however; there are some that are more important than others. When the organization is developing and planning their benefit package, there is information that is very important for the planning process and then there is other information that is not as important when it comes to the planning process. The most important information when it comes to planning process for employee benefits would be compensation(2014). You have to have a good compensation package for your employees based on their experience, education, and knowledge. When employees are searching for jobs, one of the first things they want to know is how much they will be making per an hour or if it is salary, the employee will want to know how much their salary is going to be. So that would be one of the most important things to consider when planning for the process of employee benefits. The second most important thing when a company is planning for employee benefits would be medical insurance. Most companies offer health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, and prescription coverage. Now a days, every person has to have health insurance due to the Obama care so that is why the medical insurance is one of the most important things to plan when planning the employee’s benefits process. Medical insurance......

...Dissertations and Theses database. (UMI No. 329321) Study Notes: Common APA Style and Formatting Challenges The following guidelines are followed by most faculty members on most Walden coursework, theses, and dissertations. Occasionally, Walden faculty will ask for slight variations on these rules. 1. Font: Use a 12-point serif font, such as Times Roman, Garamond, , Palatino, or Century Schoolbook. Titles, headings, and table titles and copy should also appear in the same 12-point type. 2. Spacing: Double-space all of your work, per guidelines in the 6th edition of the APA style manual. Per APA, you should insert two spaces after a sentence ending period, although many Walden members allow a single space after a period. [A single space is fine for Dr. Mahoney.] For all assignments, be careful that your word processing program does not put extra line spaces before or after paragraphs. You can change that under Page Layout, Paragraph, Spacing for Windows 7. 3. Margins and page numbers: All margins should be 1" from the edge of the paper. Page numbers go in the upper right corner, 1" down and 1" in from the edge of the paper. The first line of text should start 1.5" down. (Note: MS Word defaults the first line of text at 1".) 4. Italics: Use italics, not underlines for book titles and journal names. The APA manual offers guidance on the use of italics in chapter 4. 5. Punctuation: The APA nuance most commonly missed by students follows: In a series......

The benefits exceeded those of similar or larger companies.The original package offered Complete Medical, 3 week vacation plus all official Holidays paid, plus other non official Holidays, besides the company included five sick days that could be used or paid at the end of the year. Also the company offered a generous bonus at the end of the year (Martinez, 2010). The Medical covered 100% of the premiums for the employee , and his/her spouse and 50% on children- all with $500.00 deductible plan, and the company would cover the $500.00 deductible ( Martinez, 2010). When the cost of medical insurance exploded, Food Process and Control held on the same benefits until a couple of years later that was not affordable, so they needed to re- structure the benefit plan, especially because at this time they were looking at more employees and that was really affecting the cost in to the company (Martinez, 2010). To cut costs Food Process and Control reduced the coverage of spouse and children to only 50%, a couple of years later Food Process and Control was forced to eliminate our portion of the $500.00 deductible and change the plan to a $1000.00 deductible to reduce the escalating costs. As for dental insurance Food Process and Control has never offered dental insurance to its employees. Now its time for a re-structure the medial and dental benefits at FPC’s and that is why I am choosing......
