This week we will review finding articles in the PubMed database for your literature review spreadsheet/matrix.
1. Interlibrary Loan Services Guide: A help guide using the UW Libraries Interlibrary Loan services.
3. Literature Review Spreadsheet/Matrix assignment
You will complete a spreadsheet which you should begin on Week 3 of class (an Excel matrix will be posted on Canvas) detailing a minimum of 6 research articles (found via the UW library online research databases). The spreadsheet will help you organize your articles, detailing their study designs, how they relate to your research question, and what the main findings are. These must be peer reviewed papers rather than web citations.

Midterm and Final Research Proposal Papers
The largest assignment for this class will be completion of an individual research proposal. For this project, each student will select a health research topic of interest, develop a research question, and propose a research project that could provide evidence with regards to the research question. The Midterm Paper will consist of a) an introduction section that introduces the broad topic of interest, the specific problem area that your research focuses on, and concludes with your research question, and b) a background and significance section which highlights important research related to your question and justifies why your researcher is important (i.e., what gap in the current literature will your study fill).
The Final Proposal Paper will revise the intro and background sections, and add in sections pertaining to the methods (study design, population, measures, procedures, ethics, and type of analysis), and discussion (implications, limitations, & future directions).
The web resources to be used for your Literature Review Matrix/Spreadsheet assignment are linked below.
