Students will select a journal article with a 2015 publication date for review. It must be a research article (not a review article) and must come from a professional, peer-reviewed journal such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Applied Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (not magazines like Prevention, Runner’s World, Men’s Health). Also, avoid Nutrition Reviews for this assignment only—it contains review articles (i.e. summaries of groups of research articles), not research articles. The review must be typewritten, bibliographic entry in current APA format, not more than one page in length (use single-spacing), with attention given to neatness and proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation. The writing must be thorough, yet concise, and should demonstrate that the student has read the article several times and thought about the research described. See tentative course calendar for due date. Students must be prepared to share a brief (i.e. 5 minute) presentation in class on the due date.
