  1. 1. Danielle Carlock
  2. 2.  When conducting a search for evidence, there are many types of articles you may run into.  Primary research articles  Review articles  Case studies  Others (news, editorials, etc) It is imperative to be able to distinguish between these different article types
  3. 3.  Present findings/results of a research study The authors conducted the actual research (i.e. primary) The article will include:  Why-why are we doing this study  How-detailed description of how carried out  What-what was found and what does it mean 2nd example Published in scholarly journals & undergo peer review
  4. 4.  Expert in the field of study (peers) evaluate an article’s methodology, merit, and overall unique contribution to knowledge PRIOR to publication In the sciences and medicine, research is almost universally peer reviewed
  5. 5.  A critical evaluation of recent research on a topic Are considered secondary sources Generally are subject to peer review Three main types:  Literature reviews  Systematic reviews  Meta analyses
  6. 6.  An overview of a topic written by an expert in the field No new contributions to research; instead are summarizing the work of others In some ways similar to a research paper you might write in college Example
  7. 7.  Uses a rigorous, pre-planned process to find and synthesize the results of many primary studies Involves a search of the literature using inclusion/exclusion criteria and then a systematic synthesis of the results Considered a high level of evidence Example
  8. 8. 1. A systematic review is carried out to locate high quality primary research on a topic2. The results from these studies are statistically combined in order to summarize the overall outcome. Example
  9. 9.  A detailed report on one patient/case Draws conclusions only on one patient in one context-i.e. not generalizable Descriptive Goal is to offer new directions for research; ask new questions Example
