Finding Great Information

TWU libraries at www.twu.edu/library has great business resources for you when you click 'Research' on the left of the page.  Scroll down and search on Business and Business - Houston to find great information.

Find Great Articles inside the Academic Search database by putting in terms like business plan limited partnership, then narrow down to full text and the last five years, again on the left of the screen.

Write Great Papers by comparing what articles say about similar topics. Read critically to notice what is missing; did they poll older and younger customers or just one age group? Write about the differences and similarities and back up your thoughts by paraphrasing and citing the authors.

Follow Perfect Citation Style using APA 6th or other style and your RefWorks account to get the process started but check those Digital Object Identifiers closely so you will be communicating clearly.

Getting Your Articles Published: Open Access & More

Consider adding your work to TWU's Repository

See Open Access to learn if this is how you wish to be published.  At ORCiD, you can consider Open Researcher and Contributer ID that offer free guidance for this free registration in this research impact service. Do you want to share and backup your research data?  If yes, see Research Data Management Getting Started for great, practical sources.  The big picture of   of open access, managing your date, dealing with the copyright registration and law and more is at Sharing your Research.  The general subject of publishing your research goes into depth in author's rights and open access so see it here.

TWU Libraries has some great YouTubes on this process, also.

A Fourfold Investment

According to a study from the University of Texas Bureau of Business Research IC2, Texas public libraries return $464 for every $1.00 invested in them.  See the report at  https://www.tsl.texas.gov/roi to learn that over 11,000 jobs depend on Texas public libraries.  What a great return on your investment!
