Students will select a journal article with a 2019 or later publication date for review. The research article must relate to nutrition and the prevention or treatment of disease. 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 the American Medical Association (JAMA), Journal of Applied Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic, or Pediatrics (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 original 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 and discuss how the research benefits health and the nutrition profession. Include the following: purpose of the research, methods or research techniques, results, and significance for the nutrition profession.
