Research Article Executive Summaries
Please revise and resubmit with the article reference so that I know where it came from and I can go to the article, if needed.
a. Read empirical research articles with the same/similar focus as your chosen topic of interest (Divorce and the Effects on Children). Articles must be based on a study where data were collected from a sample, analyzed, and findings were shared. In addition to increasing your skills of abstracting key points from articles, the summaries will provide you with material to synthesize for later integration in the literature review section of the Research Proposal assignment.
b. For each of the four articles, complete a 2-2 ½ page summary using the format provided. The sample paper in d2l will serve as a helpful guide. At the end of the summary, include the full reference citation of the article.
c. After the reference citation, complete a 1- 1 ½ page application/critical reflection responding to the following. Note that each research article executive summary assignment has a different set of questions to be answered. Number each of your responses as they are numbered below.
