Nutrition Question

For this project, you will select a SINGLE nutrition-related topic of interest. (4 points) It can be a topic we’ve covered in class that you would like to learn more about, or a nutrition-related disease/condition in which you are personally interested. Make sure the topic is specific enough that you don’t get thousands of search results. Check with your instructor or refer to this list (Links to an external site.) if you need ideas or are unsure about your topic.
Take the Finding Articles Online Workshop (10 points). This workshop will help you find appropriate journal articles for the project. It takes about 1 hour to complete.
To enroll in this workshop go to the Saddleback Library workshop page.Links to an external site.

Find two articles on your topic. You may use any of the Saddleback databases when conducting your search, however the 3 databases that most likely have scientific articles are Academic OneFile, Academic Search Premier and Proquest. The articles MUST be:
Retrieved from an academic database
Published within the last 5 years
At least 3 pages long
Peer-reviewed, scientific articles (NOT popular press)
Again to help select a topic, here is a sample List of Nutrition Research Topics (Links to an external site.)
Check your links before you submit to make sure it is the full article when you are logged in, either through the Saddleback library database or just on the internet. Be sure to limit your searches to full text if it is an option in the Saddleback database so you do not see abstract only articles. Access to the full text article helps you work toward full credit.
We have a LibGuide (Links to an external site.) set up specifically for this course to help with this research project. If you need additional help conducting your search, you can set up a one-on-one consultation with a librarian: https://sclibrary.wufoo.com/forms/library-consultation-request-form/ (Links to an external site.)
Analyze your articles using the Article Evaluation worksheet (Links to an external site.) and record the score for each article. Turn in this completed worksheet; one tab for each article.
Develop the Bibliography using APA formatting. Use these resources on the Saddleback website:
Citation: A Brief Introduction (Links to an external site.)
Writing and Citing SourcesLinks to an external site.
Include electronic links to the FULL articles as well as the Article Evaluation score for each. Watch the 3-min video below to learn the difference between DOIs and URL e-links to your articles. Do NOT copy and paste article links from the database browser, as the instructor will not be able to access the article.

Submit the Article Evaluation worksheet (Links to an external site.) including the Bibliography, Article Evaluation score and e-links for each article. Make SURE you use the doi or appropriate journal website.
