Intercom guidelines

Comments

Your Intercom paper must be formatted according to these guidelines.

If I get any emails asking about single/double spaced, APA/MLA etc., it means you are not following the guidelines.

Discussion questions

Q1.

How are the priorities of the academic research and practitioner different? What information do the expect to find in an article written for them? How does the content of an article written for one, fail for the other?

The answer is much more than "the researcher wants all the details."
