Reading homework help. You will write two Analysis of Scientific Literature papers. Each will be a 3 to 4 page critique of an empirical research study that has been published in a peer-reviewed academic journal. The specific paper to be critiqued will be given to you by your instructor. For the second Analysis of Scientific Literature you will need to find your own peer-reviewed paper, by first selecting a relevant topic from the list of suggested topics further down in this packet. Furthermore, this article will be the same one that you will use for your class presentation. The article must be turned in with your written assignment. Your instructor will provide you with specific information on how to select a topic, how to find a worthwhile study to analyze, and how to turn in your Analyses of Scientific Literature.
After the first Analysis of Scientific Literature, you will receive feedback on your critical evaluation skills. Please use this feedback when preparing the second Analyses of Scientific Literature.
Please see the syllabus for the due dates for the two different analyses. Late papers will receive lower grades, so please be sure to turn your paper in on time.
Each student must do his/her own work; plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result in a failing grade on the assignment and the student being reported to the Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development. Prior to grading, all papers will be scanned by Turnitin.com. Your instructor will provide additional information regarding use of turnitin.com.
