Assignment:
Researchers begin with an
interest in some aspect of the world
” (Shi, 2008, p. 34).

 

You
are going to combine your homework (onsite) or discussion board assignments
(online) during weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 to form the basis of your final
research paper. We are “killing two birds with one stone.” Follow the instructions here and you will be
SO happy in Week 8.

 

By Week 2, select an area of research that
interests you. Some examples of interest could be Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple
Sclerosis, the lived experience of minority groups such as LGBT (Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, Transgendered) college students, diabetes development in Latino or
Caribbean populations, etc.  You can
select an area of interest in which you will find research based upon what
interests you, however your selection MUST be approved by the professor as no
two projects can be alike, so select early!

 

Procedure:  In
week 2 you will select a secondary
source
 article about your topic to begin to get an overview of its scope
and some of the current efforts. In weeks 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, you will select
primary source article which
addresses the OCR chapter of
the week’s focus. Review the library references posted in our class course
information section to learn more about primary and secondary sources.

 

For
example, if your topic is osteoporosis and our chapter topic of the week is
meta-analysis, you will search for and locate as your homework (if online, for
the discussion board), an article that is a meta-analysis of the scientific
literature to date on osteoporosis. Start your search using your topic word,
e.g. osteoporosis and the vocabulary/focus of the week, e.g. osteoporosis and
meta-analysis.  See the list in course
information of what you are to look for each week.

 

The
research should be not older than 3
years
 as a lot happens in science over time. Use our library resources
and our librarians to help you find your article for the week.

 

Each
week, you will remember to look at the bibliographies and other citations in
your articles to find other related sources. We will learn to do this online as
well by looking at retrieved journal articles and examining the layout of the
article and its sources online.

 

Each
week, you will complete a summary of the article you have found including the
relevant vocabulary for the week’s chapters/readings. You will provide proper
MLA citation format for the summary. You will give your professor a direct link
to the article and/or a copy of your article. If online, you will discuss the
article on the discussion board. If onsite, you will follow the professor’s
direction each week concerning this assignment.

 

SAVE
these summaries in a folder on your computer AND on a flashdrive. This is where
the good part comes in.

 

 

In Week 8:  Write your paper using all the sources you
found in weeks 2-7. You will already have done the research for your final
paper while learning the vocabulary of research in health services and while
learning how to do excellent research yourself!

 

 

Hand in
your paper in Week
9
 for the possibility of 100% credit. Papers handed in beginning Monday of Week 10
have a 10% per day penalty.

 

Upload
your paper in the link in the Final Paper Folder. Please use Mozilla Firefox or
Google Chrome as your brower choices. Please call the helpdesk at extension
1540 if you need help. I am not the geek squad. Don’t send me an e-mail about
tech issues. I can’t fix it.

 

 

 

You will
present an overview of your paper if online on the discussion board in Week 11.

PLAGIARISM:
Using another person’s words (written or oral), thereby claiming the work as
your own original work by direct statement or implication by not providing
proper references and citations is against the law, against this school’s
policies, and is punishable by: automatic failure of the assignment; failing
the course; and possible dismissal from the school. Plagiarism is unethical and
illegal and will not be tolerated. If I suspect plagiarism, I will upload your
paper into Safe Assign to check. A score of 25% or more plagiarized will result
in a zero for the assignment.

 

QUESTIONS: Please do not hesitate
to contact me with any questions, discussion about direction or research for
this assignment at any time. The school librarians are also available to help
