A Start-up Guide to IB Economics and Research

General Info Box

Welcome IB Econ Students.  You are beginning your IA practice by working with our online databases as well as non-database links.  

Your Job is to research one of your "Key Terms" and find 3 articles.  One article from EBSCO - Newspapers, One from NewsBank, and one from the "wild" web.  For each article you need to provide Ms. Lyons a copy of the article with its citation (APA).  You will summarize each article and provide the article citation and upload that summary document to turnitin.

Article in a Newspaper

Cite a newspaper article as you would a magazine article, but note the different pagination in a newspaper. If there is more than one edition available for that date (as in an early and late edition of a newspaper), identify the edition after the article title.
