Using the Library Information Resource Network (LIRN), JSTOR, or any other electronic journal database, research one (1) peer-reviewed article that can be used to answer your upcoming PA2 assignment. Your discussion should summarize the article in such a way that it can justify any arguments you may present in your PA2 assignment and should be different than the abstract. In addition to your researched peer-reviewed article, you must include an example of the article researched as it is applied by industry (company, business entity, etc.).
Please note: This article summary should not be the only article researched for your PA2 assignment. You may (and should) have several other articles researched in order to fully answer your PA2 assignment. The concept of this DQ is to allow students to be proactive in the research necessary to complete this assignment. You may use your article summary, partially or its entirety in your PA2 assignment.
Important: Please ensure that you insert your citation for the article as your reference in your discussion post.
