Scholarly Article Review Assignment Instructions
For this assignment, you will do a search of UMUC’s data bases for two (2) scholarly articles in peer reviewed journals on your approved topic – please note that you must find articles which are available in full text on the UMUC library data bases. After finding and reading 2 scholarly articles, please present your results in a Word document with the following included:
- A complete bibliographic entry (as you would include it in your bibliography) for the site, including the URL and your date of access. You should note that the required style for this class is Chicago Humanities Style (not the author/date variant). The Effective Writing Center created a short overview on using Chicago Humanities Style called “Brief Guide to Citing Sources in Chicago.” It includes a list of sources formatted in this style. The examples labeled N=footnote/endnote format and those labeled B=bibliographic entry. A copy of this guide is located in the Writing Resources section of Course Resources under Content of this LEO class site.
- Write a detailed summary of the main points of the article – in your own words.
- Describe how the article pertains to your research topic.
