  4. 4. Assignment No. 1, Part 1 Find a peer-reviewed, oceanography-related article from a scholarly journal. Assignment No. 1 (due 9/19/2017) Assignment No. 2 (due 10/31/2017) Assignment No. 3 (due 11/21/2017) Find a peer-reviewed, oceanography-related article from a scholarly journal Get copy of article.

Get approval for article. Conduct these steps three times
  5. 5. Some preliminary questions 1. What is a peer-reviewed article? 2. How do I know if an article is peer reviewed?
  6. 6. What is a peer-reviewed article? Scholarly/peer-reviewed/refereed papers are reviewed by experts (peers) in very specific fields to ensure that:  The paper is based on original research  Research is performed using proper and rigorous scientific methodology  The paper adds to the body of knowledge. Peer-reviewed publications are considered to be of the highest quality for academic research.
  7. 7. How do I know an article is peer- reviewed? (continued) Therefore: 1. Check to see if the journal in which the article was published uses peer-review. 2. If the journal uses peer-review, see if the article has the characteristics of a peer- reviewed article. ○ Even if a journal uses peer review, it may publish content that is not peer-reviewed. ○ For example, Letters to the Editor are (typically) not peer-reviewed; neither are book reviews.
  8. 8. Does the journal use peer- review? Check Ulrichsweb Search for the journal name (e.g. Nature or Science) Look for a referee jersey next to the journal’s name (remember, peer- reviewed articles are also called “refereed” articles)
  9. 9. What are the characteristics of a peer-reviewed article?  If your article was published in a journal that uses peer-review, you now need to establish whether the article has characteristics typical of a peer-reviewed article.  Characteristics may relate to:  The article title  The publication in which the article was published.  Author information  Submission versus publication dates  Article sections ○ For example, Abstract, Introduction, Literature Search, Arguments, Methodology, Results, Conclusions, References  Charts, Graphs, and Equations  The text (e.g. types of nomenclature).  Not every peer-reviewed paper will share every one of these characteristics.  However, they should have many of them.
  10. 10. Peer-reviewed article: The Title Title: may summarize the articles contents, and will usually contain technical terms that are specific to the subject of the research.
  11. 11. Peer-reviewed article: The Title Example of an article title from a publication that does not use peer-review Article title from an issue of Popular Science
  12. 12. Peer-reviewed article: The Authors Authors: List of authors will also include their credentials (helps establish their authority) and may also have associated contact information
  13. 13. Peer-reviewed article: Submission and Publication Dates Submission & Publication Dates: Provide a history of when the paper was first received, accepted and published. Reflects the time required for the peer- review process to take place.
  14. 14. Peer-reviewed article: The Publication Publication: Provides the title of the journal in which the article was published, as well as the volume/issue numbers, page numbers, etc. (needed to write a citation for the article)
  15. 15. Peer-reviewed article: The Abstract Abstract: Briefly summarizes the contents of the article (useful for quickly establishing whether the article pertains to your research)
  16. 16. Peer-reviewed article: The Introduction Introduction: Addresses the topic or problem being addressed by the research, as well as the contexts and reasons for the research. Introductions may include literature reviews, although these may also appear as separate sections.
  17. 17. Peer-reviewed article: Charts, Graphs, and Equations related to data Charts, Graphs and Equations: Relate to the data collected and analyses performed in the course of the research
  18. 18. Peer-reviewed article: The Text Article Text: In addition to the Introduction, sections may include a Literature Review, Arguments, Experimental Methods, Results and Conclusions. The text will often be highly technical and use terminology unfamiliar to the general public.
  19. 19. Peer-reviewed article: The Conclusion Conclusion: Summarizes the results of the research
  20. 20. Peer-reviewed article: The References References: Lists each of the articles cited by the author(s).
  21. 21. How do I find my first article?  Use one of the library’s research databases.  Research databases allow you to simultaneously search for articles in many scholarly journals.  The library provides access to almost 150 different research databases.  Which one(s) should you use?
