Priorities for Action
Communication and Dissemination
Formatted according to APA and Saudi Electronic University writing standards; and
Provide support for your statements with in-text citations from a minimum of four scholarly articles. Two of these sources may be from the class readings, textbook, or lectures, but two must be external. The Saudi Digital Library is a good place to find these references.
