The Assignment

For this assignment, you will use various Leatherby Libraries databases that contain full text, peer-reviewed journal articles, including research articles (articles that report on one study conducted by the author(s) using qualitative and/or quantitative research methods) and literature reviews (articles that report on multiple studies about a particular topic or phenomena).

You will need to provide citations for 10-15 peer-reviewed journal articles from the library databases.

  • Four (4) of the articles must be research studies
  • The remaining articles must be a combination of literature reviews and research articles
  • All articles can be found through library databases (Step 4 of this assignment explains this in more detail)

Before you begin working on this assignment, please read through each step of this assignment. The steps demonstrate exactly what you need to do to locate articles using the library databases, how to identify the different types of articles you are required to find, and how to properly cite the articles you select.
