Criminology

Although Criminology is a good journal, you need to make sure the authors collected their own data through a survey, interviews or another type of original research
locate a recent criminal justice research article from a recognized peer-reviewed professional journal or government publication.
Note. Non-peer-reviewed newspaper articles or articles from popular magazines, such as Time or Newsweek,are not acceptable. For assistance on determining what constitutes a professional peer-reviewed resource, contact your facilitator.
Write a  5 and Half  paper in which you address the following:
  • Identify the purpose of the research study, problem, and questions.
  • Describe the design of the study.
  • Identify an operational definition used by the researchers.
  • Provide one example of inductive logic and one example of deductive logic presented in the results.
  • Identify whether the research study is a quantitative or qualitative design. Explain your answer.
  • Identify the methodology, population, sampling methods, and return rate, if applicable.
  • What were the findings of the study?
  • Describe the author’s conclusions and recommendations.
  • In your opinion, could the study have been done
The goal of this paper is to have you analyze/evaluate a research study.  The most important aspect is the article that you select.  You really need to use the university library and find an article which comes from an academic journal.  Some of the best research will be found in “Justice Quarterly”, “Criminology”, “The Journal of Criminal Justice”, and other journals which are available through the library.

The easiest way to find an academic article is to use the library and search on a topic you are interested in.  Then look to see what the journal is called.  Try to avoid internet sources.  If you have questions, send me the name of the journal, the name of the article and the abstract.  I can make sure it is the correct type.

Once you address the requirements of the paper as listed above, you will get to express your opinion about the study.  If you think it was well done, that is fine.  If though you thought there were problems, you can critique the study.
