PSY 326 WEEK 2 ASSIGNMENT

Question description

Annotated Bibliography of Research Methods
Using the Ashford University Library databases, locate and read
peer-reviewed articles on a variety of research designs and methods. Be
sure to include at least one article regarding the method used in the
study you selected in Week One. Create an annotated bibliography in
which you select, summarize, and evaluate at least six of these
peer-reviewed sources. The sources chosen must have been published
within the last 10 years. Note that the articles required for this
assignment are not research studies; instead, they are articles about
how to do various aspects of research.
At least three of the sources should be about qualitative research
methods, and at least three of the sources should focus on quantitative
research methods. For each source, identify the approach (qualitative or
quantitative) and the research design category (non-experimental or
experimental). Summarize each source in your own words, describing its
purpose and how the information would be useful to a researcher
designing a new study. Do not use quotations from references for this
assignment.
Refer to the tutorials titled, “Searching for Articles”, “Finding
Full-Text Articles”, and “Peer Reviewed Articles”, which are available
within the Ashford University Library for questions regarding how to
search for articles when you do not have the citation.  It is located
under the “Getting Research Help” tab, in the top center of the
navigation heading on the library’s homepage, then select
“Tutorials”.  It is strongly recommended that you utilize the
EBSCOhost and/or ProQuest databases for locating articles on topics in
psychology and the other social sciences.  Another good one to try is
the SAGE Journals Online database.  You may only select articles that
are available in full-text format.  To do this, limit your search
criteria by selecting the Full-Text box in the search function of the
database. 
Your paper must be a minimum of four pages (excluding title and
reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the
Ashford Writing Center. All sources must be documented in APA style, as
outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
