Peer reviewed article summary

profiletreor_

For this assignment you will complete a summary review of an scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article on an important issue in psychology selected from the list below. This summary will be attached to the assignment screen for grading and also posted on the Week 2 Forum where it will 1) be read by classmates for discussion in class, and 2) be considered by them as the direction for their course paper (see details in the Literature Review assignment instructions for how this works).

 
This assignment requires a single evidence-based, peer-reviewed journal article, not an opinion publication or one reviewing or summarizing multiple writings or researchers' experimental studies.  Evidence-based means the article reports on a single experiment conducted by an article's author(s).  Peer-reviewed means an article in an academic journal that had to be approved by the journal's editorial panel of scientific discipline experts.  Trade journals and commercial/popular publications do not qualify for the assignment. 
 
MUST BE A evidence-based, peer-reviewed article.
 
Because it reports on a single article, this assignment will only have one publication, the article you are summarizing, listed in the required APA formatted attached Reference list.  Submissions not meeting this requirement cannot be assigned points. This paper will include a description of the article’s main focus, a description of the experimental methodology (including the study sample, measures and analyses used, etc.), discussion of the results and related conclusions reached by the article’s authors, and a substantive closing paragraph describing two to three future research ideas inspired by the article.
 
Each member of our class will generate from article summaries classmates post on the Week 2 Forum a topic on which to base the course Literature Review Paper due later in the 8 weeks. Once a student decides which classmate’s article will determine the topic focus of his/her Literature Review Paper, the student must notify the course instructor of and receive approval for his or her Literature Review Paper focus choice via a Message sent from inside the classroom (not email) by the end of WEEK 3 of the course. This assignment, like all others in the course, must be completed per the general writing standards.
