You will be required to research a nutrition topic of your choice*. You must collect at least three research** articles on your topic, from accredited journals, i.e. The Journal of Clinical Nutrition or JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association) or any of the other journals available at the library or on the library’s database. You must submit the first page of the article with your paper, and include a Bibliography of articles read and the weblink if available. The final project will consist of the following components:
A summary of your topic of choice, including the issues of concern or what research is being done and why.
Include a copy of the first page of all three articles and bibliography of work cited.
Write a brief summary of each research article including who the subjects were, how many subjects were involved, what exactly was being studied, how the study was set up and what the results and conclusions were (a paragraph or so on each article.)
Then you must write your own conclusion on the topic relating to the research you just read and what you learned from your readings.
*Topics must be specific, i.e., not simply “Vitamin A” but “Vitamin A and Cancer Prevention” or not just “Pediatric Nutrition” but “Parental Influence on Food choices of Children.” You should scan the research out there and hone in on a topic of interest. The actual detailed project is up to you.
**Research articles must have subjects, methods, experiments and conclusions. It must be the original research NOT an article about research. Not all articles in journals are original research, choose carefully.
