You will choose a scientific journal article in a peer-reviewed publication and summarize it. The peer-reviewed article can be an original research article, meta-analysis article, or a literature review article. You will then read and summarize a popular resource on a topic similar to the peer-reviewed article. Popular resources can include magazines, newspapers, or websites. Finally, you’ll compare how the topics, results, and/or conclusions in the peer-reviewed publication are addressed to how they are treated in the popular resource. You will submit both a written report and make a recorded video presentation of your assignment.
Choosing a Peer-Reviewed Article:
You will use the database Academic Search Complete in order to find your peer-reviewed journal article. The journal article can be on any topic related to biology, but must be a full-text article from a peer-reviewed journal.
