The PSYC 2328 "Letter to the Editor" assignment requires you to find a newspaper article that discusses a peer-reviewed study on a topic in early childhood psychology. The article must have been published in the last five years.
After you have found the newspaper article that you wish to use for this assignment, you must then find the original study that the newspaper article cites.
This guide will walk you through the steps of finding a newspaper article that references a psychological study and how to track down that study in a Library database.
The majority of articles in the PsycINFO database come from scholarly peer-reviewed journals, but you should still critically assess your sources to ensure that they have been peer-reviewed.
