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. Research Proposal Assignment -- Literature Review Spreadsheet section (pg. 2):
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.

Research Proposal Assignment -- First Submission and Final Research Proposal (pgs. 1 & 2):
The largest assignment for this class will be the 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 First Submission is a draft of your Final Proposal Paper. It will include four key sections: (? (1) Introduction/Literature Review, (2) Methods, ) (3) Limitations, (4) Discussion and Future Directions, (5) References: (no page limit & does not count towards page limit): A minimum of 6 peer-reviewed references. Websites do not count towards the 6 references. (??Is one meta-analysis or systematic review okay to use??)
The Final Proposal Paper is a revision of your First Submission. Pay specific attention 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.
