exploratory essay 17

Peer Reviewed sources are those that must be reviewed by experts in that author’s field to verify that the research is correct and well documented. Once this article has been approved (very rarely approved on the first try) then it is published. One of the best parts of peer reviewed research is that it is unbiased and has been verified by experts,, in other words, you can trust it!

You will need to find four scholarly journals for this assignment. Instead of synthesizing your information into a traditional essay, you will instead focus on the research. You will dedicate individual paragraphs to each of the four articles looking at them individually. You will create a heading for each of the four sources by correctly citing the article in APA format so that I can tell which article that you are referring to. This will also help you to focus your writing on only one article at a time. You are free to research both sides of your position and write from two different viewpoints.

You will not include a reference page. Your individual sources should be cited (as if the cite was on the reference page) directly above the paragraph that discusses that source. Remember that this should be four individual sections, about each of the four sources that you are required to research. By citing above the paragraph, this eliminates the need for in-text citations in this first paper.
