Assignment Expectations: As part of your Research Project, the fourth assignment requirement expects students to complete a Scholarly Article Review of two peer reviewed scholarly secondary sources. For this assignment, you will do a search of UMGC’s databases for two (2) scholarly source articles in peer reviewed journals on your chosen topic – please note that you must find articles which are available in full text on the UMGC library databases. After reading and analyzing your two sources, students will write a 250-word analysis for each scholarly article. Keep reading to find out more about where to find sources for this assignment and what your analysis should include. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to your instructor.
But First, What Exactly is a Peer Reviewed Scholarly Article? Scholarly Articles are accounts of the past written by historians who use primary sources as evidence. For example, secondary sources consist of books, articles, essays and lectures. For this assignment, students should select peer reviewed articles. I would encourage you to stick with articles, since these sources can be easily found by way of UMGC library databases. Moving forward, if you still have questions about peer reviewed scholarly sources, please email me with questions. If you prefer further verification, please feel free to email me the sources that you plan to use.
Where can I find a Peer Reviewed Scholarly Articles?: Where should students look for peer reviewed scholarly secondary sources?? Well, the UMGC LIBRARY, of course!! Why, you ask? Well, the UMGC library subscribes to many databases that contain such resources and are available to you in full-text and electronic format.
Students can find these sources by searching through the databases at the UMGC library. Here are some helpful links to get started with the research process.
Please note that you must find articles which are available in full text through the UMGC library databases. Do not use articles from history.org, Britannica.com, online encyclopedias or similar tertiary sources. While these tertiary sources are useful for general knowledge, they are not scholarly secondary sources. Should students use one or more of these sites, then they will not receive credit and the instructor will ask you to redo this assignment.
