Assignments are often a sketch of a research project that includes the rudiments of a literature review and better support for introduction, thesis, methodology, and discussion sections.
● Understand how sources are valued via citation patterns ("invisible colleges") and journal impact factors within a field
● Use filters, such as how to limit searches to empirical research and particular methodologies
● Start to read a research article backwards, from references to context within the article and be able to categorize use of sources with context into Introduction/Background/LiteratureReview, Methodology, Discussion, Support/Differ
● Understand and apply statistical methods
The goal of this exercise is to help you find ways to identify scholars and researchers who are working in an area
