For the first short paper assignment, you are each to review a recently (within the past 3 years) published article from a peer-reviewed journal. The journal should be one listed on the ABDC journal list (link below). If you choose an article from a peer-reviewed journal not on the list, you must get approval first. You will submit a PowerPoint presentation with audio embedded (no more than five minues) and a one page Word document. The files must be in those formats only. PDF’s and other media formats will not be accepted. You should focus on the following:
1: What is the issue/topic?
2: Why is it important? Who cares?
3: What did the authors find in their research?
4: What did you like about the research? What were potential flaws/shortcomings of the research?
5: Propose your research that improves/expands upon what the authors did in this study.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, and I will be happy to discuss them with you.
