Summarize and Methods

Anonymous

Question Description

As you have likely noticed when reading research studies, research articles start with an introductory section. This section summarizes prior research on the topic that the research study is about. This is important because prior research can inform reasons for the present study. Perhaps there are some findings that are controversial or gaps in what is known in a particular area or further questions that result from existing study results. Additionally, sometimes clinical professionals working in the field research what is known on a disorder or a treatment to present to colleagues and/or students working with them. For example, many hospitals and clinics have Grand Rounds where information is presented to the students and professionals who work in the setting. Given this, being able to summarize results from studies is important for researchers and clinicians in the field. You will have an opportunity to practice this skill in this week’s learning activity.

Use the information gathered for the Unit 4 Assignment to complete the following:

  • Summarize the studies, similar to the introductory section of a research paper. Follow this with a research question you would want to study that follows from these studies and a hypothesis to accompany the research question.
  • Write the Methods Section of your paper- consider who would be in the study, how they would be recruited, and the study measure you would use.
  • Add a cover page and reference page to your paper. Using APA format, also include a Running Head.

Your paper should be a minimum of two pages.

Unit 4 learning activity: library search PART ONE: Watch T.O.R.C.H. video series. Describe what each letter (T, O, R, C, H) means: T: it involves teaching oneself about the topic. At this stage, you need to learn the basics of the topic and search for information from the secondary references concerning the research. O: involves organization of oneself regarding the topic. After learning research information from secondary sources, one needs to organize thoughts on how to find information, and key questions to be answered. R: involves research for evidence to support the main points and arguments. At this stage, you need to search for main points and phrases for relevant information. C: involves checking the research to ascertain the authenticity of the information regarding the research. Information referenced needs to be from reliable authors and should be recent. Different authors may have different information regarding a similar topic. Checking research will help eliminate irrelevant information. H: involves seeking help. During the writing process, one needs to ask questions regarding the topic at hand. Research help can be requested from the professor or the librarian. Watch the video: How Do I Pick a Topic For A Research Project Then answer the following: 1. What is one thing that should be considered with research reality and why is it important? During research, one needs to ensure that there are enough resources available for the topic under consideration. Also, it is important to determine the extent of the of the research project as well as the amount of time available to complete the project. Watch the video: Reading Scholarly Articles Then answer the following: 1. Pick two parts of an article and discuss what important information can be found there. The introduction part provides background information concerning the topic of research as well as helps state the purpose of the study. The abstract section also gives the summary of the study as well as providing an understanding of the otherwise complex information in the research.

Introduction
When preparing to conduct a research study, there are significant processes that one
needs to undertake to make a successful research study. According to unit four of the class
reading, the best formula that can work as a guide in the preparation is TORCH. The term has
initials where each initial has its rule. T involves teaching oneself about the topic of study
through learning more about the subject using secondary sources. O prompts the researcher to
organize the research topic where after getting the knowledge from the secondary sources
regarding the process, the thought process should be arranged in a coherent manner (Passer,
2013). R stands for researching for crucial points that can support the findings that have been
collected in the first step. C is an initial used to refer to the process of checking the authenticity
of the information collected about the research and so the references used should be examined
for credibility and reliability (Passer, 2013). Finally, the last process represented by F involves
seeking for help during the writing process through asking questions on the topic under study.
The best source of support is the professor or the librarian.
Further on in the unit, there are explanations regarding significant factors to undertake
during the research process. One of these factors is a collection of enough resources for the topic
one is aiming to conduct research. Along with this, the researcher should be able to determine the
extent of the study and the amount of time it will take to perform the entire research (Passer,
2013). Consequently, a standardized research article must have the introduction section that
relays what the study is about as well as pointing out what the other researchers have found
regarding the same topic. It also must have an abstract section that gives a summary of the study
