Question 3

  1. Trade Journal CoversTRADE PUBLICATIONS: One of the best ways to find information on an industry is to look for trade publications. Articles in trade publications (such as Automotive News, Beverage World, and Institutional Investor and others displayed above) are written for readers who work in that industry. Trade publications feature articles, ads, special reports, and more on industries, companies, executives, consumers, and business trends. Since these publications are so specialized, they are likely to address a variety of issues, viewpoints, and perspectives related to the subject matter. Most common trade publications have good reputations with experts in the industry and provide verifiable, trustworthy information.Select the answer that best describes trade journals:
    Trade journals are written by experts, but these are usually not people with PhDs who are working in academia; instead, they are experts who are employed in the trade or profession
    Trade journals are written for experts, but again, the readers are not necessarily scholars; they are individuals working in that trade or profession
    Trade journals are not peer reviewed or editorially reviewed; instead, they are more like magazines in that they have editors.
    Trade journals are considered scholarly.

Question 11

  1. At the recent 2017 International Consumer Electronics Show, Under Armour announced their newest product, high tech pajamas that help you sleep better. According to a description provided by Under Armour, “The pattern lining the garments includes special bioceramic particles that absorb infrared wavelengths emitted by the body and reflect back Far Infrared, helping the body recover faster while promoting better sleep.” This is a very bold claim and requires some checking. Take a look at what Wikipedia has to say about this “Far Infrared” technology. You can see there are several references to the research in this area. For this question, use the Resources in your library link (example below) to see if the Wilmington University Library provides access to some scholarly resources on this topic.

    User: n/a – Added: 9/28/10Proper citation is necessary for a number of reasons. When you cite resources, you demonstrate that you understand and adhere to the practices of scholarly culture. Because of this, your work is more likely to be taken seriously by members within the field. Citation allows you to demonstrate that you are building upon information and contributing to the larger conversation of scholarship.

It is likely that if you choose not to cite an idea, someone will notice.Citation also provides background information for your audience by offering them a path to follow should they choose to research your topic further or examine your sources in order to determine their point of view. Bibliographies or references found at the end of a document help to point the reader in the direction of further resources.The process of sharing information through research is the conversation of scholarship. As you form new ideas based on the information you learn from experts, you contribute to the ongoing conversation on a particular topic.Select the following elements of why citing is important
