5-1 Methology

A literature analysis of the five peer-reviewed scholarly articles you will use for your final project. For Milestone Three, you will evaluate the methodology of those five articles, such as their validity and ethical considerations. Your research here will help your supervisor ensure his or her future research is both ethical and valid. 
Prompt: For this assignment, evaluate the methodology of five articles you used as the basis for your literature analysis. 
The following critical elements must be addressed specifically: 
 Draw connections between the research design and the methodology used in the chosen research.  
What methods did practitioners use to protect the validity of their investigations and not project their own assumptions on the empirical evidence? 
Substantiate your claims. 
For example, did the researchers document and disclose all their procedures? How was their work grounded in theory? 
What were the ethical considerations in conducting research in this particular field and in addressing this issue? 
Provide examples from your research to support your response. 

Instructions: 1. Make any needed improvements to the Milestone Two: Literature Analysis that you completed in Module Four, based on your instructor feedback. 2. For each article, write a one-to-three sentence description of the research design. 
Include the following: 
 What was the research question? 
 What criminological theory did the author relate to the issue or topic of the research?  
Restate the methodology (qualitative or quantitate) you identified in the Module Three annotated bibliography worksheet, then explain how the research design informs the methodology used, or vice versa.  
How was the data collected?  
From whom was the data collected? 
3. For each article, describe, in your opinion, why the author chose to use a qualitative or quantitative research methodology for the article.  
Refer back to the advantages and disadvantages you outlined in your literature analysis.  
Your description should be in the form of one short paragraph. 
4. For each article, explain what methods the practitioners may have used to protect the validity of the investigations and not project his or her own assumptions on the empirical evidence.   
Substantiate your claims. For example, did the researchers document and disclose all their procedures? How was their work grounded in theory? 
Consider how the research could have been done in an ethical manner.  
Your description should be in the form of a short paragraph. 
5. For each article, describe what the ethical considerations were in conducting research in this particular field and in addressing this issue.  
Provide examples from the article to support your response.  
Your description should be in the form of one to three short paragraphs.
