 Week 2: Locating and Citing a Scholarly Source

Part 1

Please locate a scholarly peer-reviewed journal article that is related to your proposed research topic. This is my research question is: How does childhood homelessness impact their mental health and effect their academic progress.  (Peer-reviewed means experts in the field have assessed if the article is suitable for publication.)This article should have been published within the past 5 years. (1) Briefly summarize the article in a few sentences. What is the article about, specifically?  (2) Why was it important for this article to be published?  (3) What further questions about the subject has this article raised? Minimum of 350 word count.

Include: (1) Citation for your article in the body of your discussion and (2) Reference for your article at the end of your discussion. 

****Remember to use the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2019) for the correct formatting of the citation and reference****

Part 2

While it is important that our work be firmly based on the work of many other authors, it is imperative that we cite our sources according to the current APA style guidelines.  Failure to do so is considered plagiarism, which we regard very seriously in the counseling profession.  This week you will begin compiling sources for your research proposal. 

This week you will submit a list of at least 5 references that you plan to use for your research proposal.  These references must be related to your chosen research question that you developed in Week 1. They must be scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles from the counseling profession, published within the past five years.  (Peer-reviewed means experts in the field have assessed if the article is suitable for publication.) Examples of non-scholarly sources that would be inappropriate for this assignment include Wikipedia, blog posts (extremely rare exceptions may be made here), PsychCentral, lifestyle magazine articles, and most other internet sources. (For your final reference list that you submit with your research proposal, you may include limited books and book chapters, but for the sake of this current assignment, only use peer-reviewed journal articles). 

Submit a list of your references in APA style as you would on the reference page for a research paper.  Use a hanging indent for each reference (first line flush left with the margin and remaining lines indented), double-space all lines,  and alphabetize the list of references using the last names of the first authors.  Be sure to use the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2019) in formatting your references. After each entry you may choose to include a sentence or two summarizing what the article is about and how it might be useful to your study. These short summaries are not required for the current assignment, but they would serve to help you as you continue work on your research proposal throughout this term.
