Course Project-Source Summary

Information Literacy Assignment (35

The purpose of this assignment is to learn about
information literacy by exploring the concept of peer review. You may be
familiar with peer review in prior writing courses, but what does it mean when
you talk about peer review in relation to academic source material?

on the following link to a DeVry University Library presentation of Peer
Reviewed Journals: The Creation of New Knowledge.

PDF presentation contains 20 slides that will introduce the peer review cycle.

After reviewing the presentation, compose a 2-paragraph
response in which you address each of the following points:

  • In your own words, identify points in the peer review cycle that seem
    especially important and explain why.

  • How does an editor differ from a peer reviewer? Use at least two points to
    support your response.

  • Based on this information, explain whether your article for this week was
    peer reviewed? How can you determine this information?

  • As you work on your research in this class, where specifically can you look
    to find peer-reviewed information?

Submit your completed assignment to the Week 2 Dropbox.

Source Summary (100 points)

The purpose of the Source Summary is to effectively
summarize and attribute information from a source. Use the library databases to
retrieve an article from the Course Theme Reading List on the topic you selected
last week. If you are considering a new topic, confirm your choice with your
professor. Once you retrieve the article, print it or save a local copy of the
full text article to your hard drive so that you can refer to the contents of
the article offline. (If the source is from the textbook, this step does not
apply.) Read the source carefully, noting the thesis, topic sentences, headings,
supporting details, and the conclusion. To become more skilled at summary and
paraphrasing, you will practice writing summaries of different lengths on the
same assigned source.

For each part of the assignment, follow the instructions
provided in Doc Sharing. When you are finished, save the document as <your
last name.Wk2 Summary Assignment> and submit it to the Dropbox by the end of
the week.
