This assignment is about reading professional journals in your field and becoming familiar with the scientific method and the tone of professional writing.
Articles published in professional journals go through a process in which knowledgeable people critique it and make suggestions (peer review). Try to select research
that relates to your major, your option, or your interests. Articles must be current (after 2005).
Our Oviatt library has a wide selection of databases and journals paid, in part, by your student fees. I encourage you to learn to use computer databases to
select topics of interest and find various journals. Articles may be retrieved from the internet but must be cited as such. Choose an article where the author(s)
describes the purpose/introduction, method, results, discussion and conclusion of a scientific investigation.
You may choose any subject that relates to lifespan development.
Make sure you are reading an actual article, not a summary or abstract of that article. Caution: book reviews, editorials, health newsletters & website summaries are
not actual research articles. These usually do not have statistical analysis or references.
A few examples of professional journals are:
Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences Clothing & Textiles Research Journal
Human Development Child Development
Psychology and Aging Family Relations
Journal of Family Issues Journal of Youth and Adolescence
Clothing & Textiles Research Journal Nutrition & Dietetic Journal
Journal of Black Psychology Journal of Interior Design

Pediatrics Social Behavior & Personality

Note: It might help you to skim through one of these journals until you come upon an article that is of interest to you.
