  3. 3. A research paper is the results of someone ’ s investigations on a selected topic. How this information is gathered, interpreted, developed and documented is up to the writer, as is the organization of ideas and the resulting conclusion.

(Cain,1999) </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Additionally, (Larson) indicates that peer-reviewed articles and books have been evaluated and critiqued by researchers and experts in the same field before the material is published. This process ensures that an article, and the scholarship of the discipline as a whole-maintains a high standard of quality, </li></ul><ul><li>accuracy, and academic integrity. (Larson). </li></ul>The Importance of Books and Peer Reviewed Articles in Graduate Studies
