This paper contains improper writing formats. As I pretend I am an instructor, I will use the Track Changes feature of my Word document tool, and I will use my Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association(APA) text as my guide to identify the errors within this paper. Some of the common things I should look for include: (a) anthropomorphisms, (b) improper citation formats, (c) passive voice, (d) improperly formatted reference list, (e) improperly APA formatted paper, and (f) seriation issues, among other errors. 2
Pursuing a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) Degree is a journey that provides an opportunity for bothpersonal and professional growth. The writing of this paper is occurring during a time when the United States isin an economic crisis. Research studies (Curtis, 2014; Williams, 2014Schildkraut, 2014, , Zack, 2015, Adelino,2014) regarding foreclosures; other research studies (Jurinski, 2016; Ryan, 2014) concerning the decline in smallbusiness startups, and scholarly dialogue (Atkinson, 2012; crossley, 2014; Jin, 2014; Jolly, 2015; McGuinness,2014) regarding job loss and its effects on various aspects of life are affecting the economy. In fact, the state of theeconomy has therefore caused many individuals to return to higher educational institutions for the purpose ofenhancing their professional skills and expanding their horizons. For some who have taken on the challenge ofcompleting a doctoral degree, they struggle to understand the appropriate scholarly writing prose expected bytheir selected educational institution academicians. In fact, writing at the doctoral level presents a unique set ofchallenges. Much has been written about research methods and designs (Moustakas, 1994; Yin, 2014; Zikmund,2013) and how to structure dissertations and research studies. Laboratories for practicing scholarly writingprose are nonexistent and doctoral students practice in the natural classroom setting. I realize like some doctoralstudents I may struggle to understand the appropriate steps to take when developing my scholarly writing prose.In fact, the anxiety of beginning the DBA journey, focusing on my writing prose, and understanding the variousphases of the doctoral program are a bit overwhelming. However, I will overcome my anxiety as I must prioritizethose things I find require strengthening, and my scholarly writing prose is primary. I began perusing the WaldenUniversity Writing Center and I found common APA nuances that, if understood and applied, will enhance myscholarly writing prose. Below are those APA nuances.1.Use the proper basic document template thus resulting in correct (e.g. fonts, line spacing, margins, andpunctuation) formatting.3
