RESEARCH PAPER Nutrition Scientific Research Reviews – Sports Nutrition:
Read and summarize, IN YOUR OWN WORDS, one scientific nutrition research paper on sports nutrition of interest to you. The article must come from peer-reviewed journals, such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Journal of the American Medical Association, PubMed, etc. (Ask me if you need to clarify this.) Include a summary of the purpose of the study, methods used, the results and the conclusion of the researchers.
Usually, to present a research paper you use the categories “Introduction”, “Materials and Methods”, “Results” and “Discussion/Conclusion” stated in your own words, not copied.
Limit your discussions to 4-6 pages, typed, double spaced. Grammar, spelling and punctuation will be considered in the grading of all written work. Submit through Canvas (TurnItIn is used too). Grading rubric in Table below. Any TurnItIn score >25% means you are “too close to your source”. That can be viewed as plagiarism.
If you have questions about APA formatting, the Purdue OWL website is great: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/10/ (Links to an external site.)
