Social Work Research

REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE-DUE THURSDAY, MARCH 22
(at least 6 pages, but more is fine)
 
THIS PAPER IS BASED ON THE HYPOTHESIS FROM YOUR FIRST PAPER THAT WAS APPROVED BY DR. SENREICH.
 
Most research articles will begin with a literature review of 10-30 articles.
For your research proposal, you will find 3 peer-reviewed journal articles that pertain to your topic.
 
THESE ARTICLES MUST BE FROM PEER-REVIEWED JOURNALS. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS FOR THIS.
 
For each of the articles, write a summary of what the research was exactly examining, the METHODS of the study, and a summary of the RESULTS.
Write this in your own words.  Do not just blindly copy what the article states.
 
For each article, include the following:
 
Was it a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods study?
How were the concepts operationalized?
Did it use a cross-sectional, longitudinal-panel, or longitudinal cohort (trend)            design?
Did the study use a self-report written survey, an in-person interview, a telephone
interview, an internet survey, observation, or record review?
Were any scales used in the study?  If so, describe.
Read Chapter 14 on Sampling in Rubin and Babbie.
Be specific in describing what type of probability or non-probability sampling was   used.  (YOU MUST STATE IF THE SAMPLING DESIGN WAS PROBABILITY OR
NON-PROBABILITY.   ALSO, YOU MUST STATE WHICH SPECIFIC TYPE OF    SAMPLING IN THOSE TWO CATEGORIES WAS UTILIZED.)
Who could you generalize the results to?  Why?
What were the strengths of the research in the article?
What were the limitations of the research in the article? How would you have           improved on the research design (if at all)?
 
AFTER REPORTING ON THE 3 ARTICLES, CREATE A SUMMARY OF WHAT THE 3 ARTICLES TOGETHER INDICATED REGARDING YOUR RESEARCH TOPIC.
