During Weeks 2, 3, and 6, you will complete a summary review of a scholarly, peer-reviewed, evidence-based, experimental study journal article related to either a topic covered in the Kalat (2008) textbook or one from the Sacks book as assigned. Expert opinion or theory articles or publications that review multiple studies are not permitted for these assignment; all articles must describe a research experiment conducted by the author(s), be written in a scholarly manner with conclusions at the end and suggested directions for future research. NOTE: Articles used for the Scholarly Article Summary assignments may also be used for the Course Paper. The required length of the review paper body (not counting the title and Reference pages) is 2-3 pages. The paper must be properly source credited with APA formatted source citationsboth in the paper body and in a “Reference” pageattached to the end. Correct source crediting means the words of the article author or authors are paraphrased (restated in the student’s own words, not copied), with a paper body source credit immediately following any paraphrasing and each source credited is also listed in an attached Reference page. Quoting is not needed for this assignment (your professor will be assessing the meaning you made of the material and the degree to which you analyzed and synthesized it with contents from course readings, not how well you can quote words written by someone else). Only a brief sentence or two of quoting is permitted and they must be in quotation marks with a source credit immediately following. Papers not following the above rules are, by definition, plagiarized and will be assigned zero points per the course rule concerning academic integrity.
The paper body will begin with an introduction identifying the article’s primary focus and end with 2 conclusion paragraphs describing how the research methods used might have impacted the research results. Each article summary will:Identify the article, the author(s) and the date of publication, both in the body of the paper and in an attached Reference list, and the focus of the research.
