Peer reviewed journals are scholarly journals that publish original research or writing. According to a Cornell University website (Links to an external site.), “The main purpose of a scholarly journal is to report on original research or experimentation in order to make such information available to the rest of the scholarly world.” Thus for this and all future assignments, be sure that the article you select is an actual research article rather than simply a literature review or general interest paper.
Go to the Hunt Library (Links to an external site.) and use EAGLEsearch to find an article on a topic of interest that falls within the subject area(s) of your degree program. Be sure to select the “Scholarly & Peer-Review” filter option on the left of the screen (following the initial display of results). Using the research cycle in the Chapter 1 of the text, describe how the selected article outlines/describes each part of the cycle. If it is lacking in a part of the cycle, tell what is missing and what could have possibly be done to fill the gap. Your post should be approximately 500 words.
Ideally, this topic of your article is one that you may wish to conduct research on throughout the term (though this is not required).
Comment on a minimum of two other posts.
