– I recommend searching the library database by click this link: (Links to an external site.)), then scrolling down and clicking on “PsycArticles,” then entering a keyword(s) that represent the behavior you are interested into the top search bar. You can also check the “Full Text” box under the ‘Limit Your Results’ section in the middle of the page to ensure your search pulls up entire articles.

Answer the following questions:
1.) Upload a copy of the scientific article you found or post a link to the web source. Also upload/ post a link / screen shot of the non-scholarly source you found.
2.) Describe the behavior you are interested in learning more about and why.

4.) Give an example of a benefit to using each of the main research methods designs you’ve read about (experimental, correlational, qualitative, longitudinal, survey, and case-study) when it comes to studying your behavior of interest.
5.) Compare and contrast your scholarly and non-scholarly sources. What were the most significant differences you noted in the quality of the argument posed by each source? Did skepticism or ambiguity intolerance come into play when you evaluated your non-scholarly source?
