In this course you will conduct scientific research in the real world. You will be working in teams to design and execute a research study. This guide has been designed by the library to assist you in finding the research you will need to conduct your literature review and create your annotated bibliography.
The tabs on this guide will help you to find the information you will need for your research. The videos will help walk you through the process.
You will need to do a comprehensive search of the published scientific literature in your area. You will need a MINIMUM of 4 PRIMARY research articles, and up to 4 general articles. The Primary vs. Secondary tab will explain the differences more fully, the video on finding the right resources will also explain the differences.
The 4 Primary research articles will be found in academic journals that can be accessed through the databases that are available at the tab on this guide. Also you can watch the video on Finding Articles.
Once you have selected articles you will need to actually read them. Do not simply select articles with good titles. You may need to go back and select additional articles as you learn more.
You will create an annotated bibliography of the sources you find. There is guidance on creating an annotated bibliography on the Annotated Bibliography tab, and a video as well.
