Summarize an Academic Article:

Write a brief APA styled paper summarizing a sociological research article that you read with the following objectives in mind:

  • to practice locating academic journal articles; to gain familiarity with the scientific method and the format of empirical academic journal articles;
  • to practice utilizing APA style of citations and references.

Your paper should be written in a standard APA style format: cover page, abstract, main paper with an introduction (stating the purpose of your paper), body as well as conclusion and reference page. Be sure to answer all of the following questions in your paper:

  • What is the research question(s)/purpose of the study?
  • What are some of the key findings from past literature that the author(s) discuss? How does this study differ from or build on previous ones? How does the past literature influence the current study?
  • Does the researcher have any hypotheses? If so, what are they? What are the independent and the dependent variables? If you don’t think the researcher has a hypothesis say so. You might speculate about a possible hypothesis (and accompanying independent and dependent variables) if you cannot locate a clear hypothesis.
  • Did the researcher use qualitative or quantitative methods? Specifically what type (e.g. experiment, survey, ethnography, etc…)? Explain the advantages and disadvantages of this type of method (be sure to cite sources).
  • What type of sample (e.g. random, convenience, etc…) does the researcher use? Explain what the advantages and disadvantages of this type of sample (be sure to cite sources).
  • What are the main results of the study?
  • What are some of the limitations of the study, as discussed by the author? Can you think of any additional limitations that were not mentioned? What are the strengths of this study?

You are required to cite and reference the article you are analyzing using APA Style. The length of the essay is 750 words (not including abstract, cover page and references); put the word count at the end of your assignment; submissions that do not meet the minimum word count will automatically receive a 10% deduction. Remember, no more than 10% of your report should be quoted material.
