THE JOURNAL ARTICLE REVIEW:
The purpose of this assignment is to help you understand how research is conducted and reported in developmental psychology. You are asked to read a peer-reviewed article from a scholarly journal in the field of lifespan development. Articles of this type will typically report on original research or replications of previously conducted experiments, or they will be literature reviews in which the author(s) present the results of a literature search on a specific topic. In the latter case, the article will usually be a dissertation on the most current thinking on a specific topic.
TO LOCATE AN APPROPRIATE ARTICLE:
You can browse the periodical room of the college library for journals that pertain to your topic. These can be from a medical, psychological, sociological, behavioral health, public health critical race theory or social work perspective. Reference librarians are available to help with your search.
