HSCI 307 Lecture #3-to go with lecture slides January 25, 2011
x Systematic review:
-covers a broad range of studies and doesn[t take the context/situation into consideration.
-need to have similar factors in the review from all studies
-can be good for considering the literature from a topic and serve as a guide to narrowing down
the research topic>snowballing to other areas/articles.
-in systematic and narrative reviews>will be asked how you conducted your review (not for this
term paper project) but for future that you need to do.
-Organizing a literature review depends on your audience (e.g. writing an article for a journal that values
-Know about the Tuskegee study of syphilis in black men in the south>example of an ethics dilemma
-covert observation: must provide a good reason to the ethics board for why this is important for the
study and necessary; involves observing participants without their knowing (behind their backs); has the
potential to be psychologically harmful to the participant(s).
-anonymity: e.g. child abuse>confidentiality is broken and the researcher can disclose information.
>>Denise did not really diverge of the notes for this lecture; we also split into groups to discuss a
research question so the lecture was shorter.
