journal, published after 2010, with a clear research methodology. The

the publication, the title of the article, and the title of the journal.

should be specifically geared to the goal, purpose, or research
question(s), hypothesis, null hypothesis, etc., the author(s) intended
to examine. These should be clearly stated.

Paragraph
2, 3, or 4 should be a brief historical Review of the Literature.
Please highlight the critical junctions in the historical considerations
that led to this current research examination.

Paragraph
5, 6 and 7 should deal specifically with the Research Design and the
Methodology used to gather this data. Pay specific attention to research
techniques, instruments, or methodology expected to accept or reject
the research question(s) or null hypothesis.This is probably the most
critical paragraphs as it deals specifically with the techniques to
gather data.

Paragraph 7, 8
and 9 should focus on the Results of the current study. What statistics
were used, what measurement techniques were utilized, and what analysis
yielded the current finding.

Paragraph
10 and 11 should examine the author(s) Recommendation, Implications,
Summary, and/or Discussion of the research findings.

Paragraph
12 and /or 13 should be your Critical Analysis of the overall body of
work. Examine such issues as the research methodology, the statistics
used, the research environment, the sample size, the population for the
study, the assumptions made by the author(s), the limitations of the
study, the potential for further research in this area, the argument for
this data to be replicated, any ethical concerns, and the risk
associated with this study.

In this assignment, the focus is on what the social scientist does with

the information that they gather. Is it practical or applicable? Does it

fall under the conceptual idea of ‘pure’ science or ‘applied’ science?

What research methodology was used and could it have been improved on.

The best way to find peer-reviewed professional journal articles is to use

“Google Scholar” (simply type that into the Google ‘search” space.It

will take you to options where you can select “peer-reviewed.”You simply

type in your search terms.Many articles are free to view and

download.Typically, those ‘free’ links are to the right side as a

hyper-link.Simply go through them and find one that meets the

criteria.You may also use data bases such as “First Search” accessing

the “Wilson Select Plus” database, entering in key word associations in

areas that you may be interested in (i.e., domestic violence, elder

abuse, demography, psychological profiles, divorce, etc). Be sure to

obtain full-text copies that emphasize a clear methodology (a study that

includes a sample size and a manipulation of variables). A librarian

will best know how to assist you in finding a peer-reviewed professional

social science journal.
