In our second session we looked at analyzing a popular magazine article.  We first had to find an article that could be used for this purpose.  It had to be a reasonable length to produce enough information to track down more information on the subject.  We looked for items with names and institutions listed or with studies named.

To find NON-scholarly article  (not what we usually ask for is it!)

Start with Academic Search Complete and narrow your search to Magazines.


not out of the Woods

To help analyze the validity of information in your popular magazine article look for:

Names of researchers or doctors

Institution names, particularly when paired with researchers or doctors

Clinic or Research Center names

Dates of studies  (sometimes studies will be mentioned that have not yet been published, but can be found in various online pre-archives or repositories)
