Within Context — Paraphrase
In certain cases managers resist corporate edicts concerning company practices on the grounds of personal ethics violations. A case in point would be pharmacists who refuse to administer drugs such as those used as birth control and artificial insemination. (Kelly, E., A. Ellis, &S. Rosenthal: 2011.)
Within Context –Direct Quote
In certain cases managers resist corporate edicts concerning company practices on the grounds of personal ethics violations. For example, Kelly, Ellis and Rosenthal (2011; p. 1.) report, “Advances in technology have resulted in medical procedures and practices that were unthought-of in previous generations. Embryonic stem cell research, abortifacients, birth control, and artificial insemination are just a few examples of these technological advances. While many individuals readily embrace such medical advances, others find them morally objectionable.”
Kelly, E., A. Ellis, and S. Rosenthal. “Crisis of Conscience: Pharmacist Refusal to Provide Health Care Services on Moral Grounds.” Employee Responsibilities and Rights Journal 23.1(2011): 37. ABI/INFORM Global, ProQuest. Web. 13 Feb. 2013.
For a passing grade, management must be the subject and discussion of the paper. One which has not been proofread and copy-edited can only score the maximum of 70-points.Failure to cite text properly that is either paraphrased or quoted is plagiarism; should plagiarism be identified, the work will received a grade of zero. Failure to select a topic by March 22nd results in an assignment made by the professor.
