The assignment just asks for any peer-reviewed scholarly business related article.
Since I work for an airline, I was thinking maybe an article that is relevant to my industry would be good. I also found a good one about Maslow's influence on employees. I will give you a couple of options.
1. The influence of Maslow's Humanistic views on employees motivation to learn. Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship, April 2008, Vol 13 (2).
2. I found one about e-cigarettes and airplanes in the BMJ (any idea what that stands for??) and it appears to be open. Tan, A. S., Bigman, C. A., Mello, S., & Sanders-Jackson, A. (2015). Is exposure to e-cigarette communication associated with perceived harms of e-cigarette secondhand vapour? Results from a national survey of US adults. BMJ open, 5(3), e007134.
Also, what does the e007134 mean at the end? And I read somewhere that there is NO period after that part. Is that correct in APA?
THANKS sooooo much!

We're in luck! The first article is available through the library's databases. Click to this link to get to the article.You will be asked for your 6 digit student ID number and your user name. The user name is your first initial and last name, no spaces - for example jdoe.
When you get to the full text, there will also be a button on that page labeled "Cite". Clicking the button will give you a fairly decent APA style reference entry -
Wilson, I., & Madsen, S. R. (2008). The influence of maslow's humanistic views on an employee's motivation to learn. Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship, 13(2), 46-62. Retrieved from https://ezproxy.brenau.edu:2040/login?url=http://search.proquest.com.ezproxy.brenau.edu/docview/203897252?accountid=9708
I say "fairly decent" because it's close, but not entirely right. In the article title, Maslow's should be capitalized, because it's a name. The "retrieved from" URL is also wrong. The retrieval information should be either a DOI (this article doesn't have a DOI number) or the address of the Journal's home page, https://www.greenleaf-publishing.com/journals/journal-of-applied-management-entrepreneurship . To get the journal's home page, I googled the title of the journal. As you noted, there is no period at the end when the citation ends with a URL or a DOI. The period might be confused as part of the URL or DOI.
In case you want it, the BMJ article is available here. BMJ stands for British Medical Journal. The citation for this one according to the database is
Tan, A. S. L., Bigman, C. A., Mello, S., & Sanders-Jackson, A. (2015). Is exposure to e-cigarette communication associated with perceived harms of e-cigarette secondhand vapour? results from a national survey of US adults. BMJ Open, 5(3) doi:http://dx.doi.org.ezproxy.brenau.edu/10.1136/bmjopen-2014-007134
In this case, the first word of the subtitle - Results - should be capitalized.The general rule for article titles is capitalize the first word, first word following punctuation (that would be the subtitle), and proper nouns such as names. The retrieval info formatting is also messed up. It should be either doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2014-007134 or http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmjopen-2014-007134 .The "doi:" format is giving way to the newer "http://dx.doi.org/" formatting, but either is currently acceptable, and both are preferred over the journal's home page when the DOI is listed.
I believe that the e007134 number is the article number assigned by BMJ. It really doesn't matter though, because it's not needed for the reference entry.
If you're still with me, I found these articles in the library catalog. Our catalog includes books and articles, and gives you a link to online versions. Whenever I already have the article title, I search it in the catalog. You can find the catalog in the Business LibGuide under Got the Citation? Find the Article. On that same page, you'll find lots of other places to search for peer reviewed and trade publications. Your Canvas site will probably have some short videos about using these resources.
Hope it goes well!
