GEOG 100 Sec. 01, 03, & 40 Out-of-Class Exercise Due: Monday, November 20th Elements of Geography Geographic Research in Scholarly Journals Exercise 4 MSU-Mankato Fall 2017 Schmid This exercise is designed to introduce you to the wealth of information available through research publications in scholarly journals. For this assignment you will focus on a geographic topic, but remember that regardless of your major, your discipline publishes research in scholarly journals. This aspect of library research should become invaluable to the rest of your career! So, learn and enjoy! Additional handouts on D2L to support this exercise include: ✓ Scholarly Journals MSU Mankato ✓ How to Find Scholarly Journal Articles ✓ Suggestions for Reviewing Journal Articles What you will learn from completing this exercise: • The difference between a peer-reviewed scholarly research journal and commercial magazine publications. • How to search for topics in the MSU electronic library databases. • How to use references cited in journal publications. What you will do to complete this exercise: You will locate, review, and summarize two separate publications:  First, find a professional research (scholarly) journal article that presents research on some geographic topic that has been published between 2016-2018. This is your primary article.  Second, locate one of the sources cited in your primary research article. 1) Summarize the research presented in your primary article. In your own words describe the main points. This can include such things as unique methodologies, new theories, results, discussion of controversy, etc. What did they do, where, and why? Be specific! See the D2L handout on Suggestions for Reviewing Journal Articles if you are not sure how to approach an article review. 2) In addition to your summary, list at least two questions that you have about your primary article. These could include basic assumptions that you don't understand or don't believe; or questions about the methodology or any theories or results generated by the author(s). 3) Summarize how your second source supports or relates to the primary article? Why did the author(s) choose to cite this source in their work? 4) Be sure to include a complete reference list of your primary article and the second source you discuss. Be sure to use (author year) in-text citations throughout your summaries to distinguish between your two sources. 5) Attach all of the following to the back of your summary pages: a) A pdf copy of the first page of your primary reference. This first page should include the abstract, title, and authors of your 2016-2018 research article. b) A pdf copy of the reference list from your primary article showing the complete reference for your second source. Do NOT print these pages from any type of article summary format---you need to download a pdf version of the article and print from that! c) A copy of the first page of your second source. The format for this will depend on what type of source you pick. If you pick another journal article, it will need to be a pdf copy. If you pick a book cited by your primary article, you will need to make a photocopy of the book’s first page. If you choose an on-line source, you will need to print a copy of the webpage. GEOG 100 Sec. 01, 03, & 40 Out-of-Class Exercise Due: Monday, November 20th Elements of Geography Geographic Research in Scholarly Journals Exercise 4 MSU-Mankato Fall 2017 Schmid Background Information and Requirements The article that you choose must be published in a refereed (scholarly, peer reviewed) research journal. Articles submitted for publication in refereed journals are reviewed by other scholars and are subject to revision or rejection. This process attempts to insure that only reliable, high quality research results are published. ✓ If you are unsure on how to search for an article, see the D2L handout on Scholarly Journals MSU Mankato and How to Find Scholarly Journal Articles, come to office hours, or ask the MSU Memorial Library reference librarians for help. Commercial magazines and trade journals are not suitable for this assignment. Commercial magazines such as National Geographic, Scientific American, and Geo World pay their staff or hire guest writers. Even though these magazine articles may contain good scientific information, they are not subject to the rigorous process of peer review. ✓ If the article does not have references cited within the text and a list of these cited references provided at the end of the article, it does not fulfill the requirements of this assignment. ✓ If the source you are using includes numerous color glossy photographs, chances are it is a commercial magazine, not a research journal. Please check with me, or a librarian, if you are not sure about your source. ✓ This link will take you to a tutorial about scholarly research publications: You should also be aware that many professional journals contain portions that are not research summaries. Your article cannot be an editorial, a book review, or any other general article review. Again, if you are not sure about what you have found, please ask for help. Format Details No page limits, but you should have a minimum of two double-spaced pages, a 500 word minimum, plus your attachments. Use the proper required format for all Fall 2017 GEOG 100 exercises and turn in a printed copy by November 20th. Grading Criteria (25 pts): Appropriate format and content Detailed summary of your 2016-2018 primary article (#1 & 2) Discussion of source cited in your primary article (#3) Complete bibliography and citation of all sources used (#4 required format) Copy of first page of 2016-2018 article (#5a) Copy of 2016-2017 reference list with second summary citation (#5b) Copy of the first page of your second source (#5c) 3 pts 7 pts 4 pts 5 pts 2 pts 2 pts 2 pts 25 points
Your Name & Tech ID Title of Assignment GEOG 100-Section # This is a summary and example of how all out-of-class assignments and extra credits for Fall 2017 GEOG 100, Sections 01, 03 and 40, must be formatted. If you are not already, you will need to become familiar with the word processing options of headers, footers, and word counts. In addition, you will need to be comfortable using paragraphs, formatting a reference list, and using author-date citations. All assignments must have a header that contains your name and tech ID, the name of the assignment, and your section number. In the header at the top of this example, all Bold items are ones that you need to fill in with your own information. In addition, you must include page numbers in a footer (see example footer on this document). Your summary for each assignment should start immediately after the header, the summary should be double-spaced, with one-inch margins on all sides. Most assignments will include a minimum word count requirement. Good writing will divide your thoughts into coherent paragraphs. Even a 250 word minimum should be broken into paragraphs. Assignments consisting of a single run-on paragraph will be docked points. Every assignment will require the use of outside sources, so all assignments will need to use in-text (author year) citations of your sources and a reference list of those sources. Your reference list should follow immediately the end of your summary, it should not be put on a separate page. Your reference citations must be done according to the author-date format used by the Annals of the American Association of Geographers (the 15th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style). Details are provided on D2L. All references used to complete an assignment must be cited in your text using the author-date citation format (details provided on D2L). If you use only a single reference, you should introduce (and cite) it in your first paragraph, and list that reference at the end of the assignment. Anytime you refer to a source in your text, you must provide the (author date) in-text citation. Reference List You should place your reference list immediately following your text summary, not on a separate page. If your list is long enough, it may go on to the next page. 1
