Evaluating Research

To Prepare

Find three peer-reviewed journal articles in the Walden Library databases related to a human and social services program that interests you professionally.

Finally, consider potential ethical issues in conducting secondary research.

The Assignment (3–4 pages):

  • In your summary, provide an evaluation of the articles (accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency, and coverage).
  • Finally, explain one potential ethical issue of conducting secondary research. Include how you might avoid this ethical issue.
  • Be specific, and provide examples to support your answers.
