Bios 262 Research Proposal: Popular Articles

Popular Articles

Popular articles can:

  • if a popular article is responsibly written, it can provide general background information before you turn to academic journal literature;
  • point to academic studies that are getting lots of attention; a newspaper or magazine or other popular publication may give a journalistic account of a scientific research project, mention its principal researchers, and mention the academic journal in which the research was published. Keep in mind though that there is a great deal of valuable scientific work that is not "newsworthy"!
