10 Key Steps for Finding & Evaluating Journal Articles for Social Work Research & Literature Reviews

March 28, 2016

Kate-Silfen-e1427300623133-615x575Kate Silfen, Health Sciences Librarian at Mugar Memorial Library at Boston University, and I have put together an infographic to help students find and evaluate  journal articles for social work research and literature reviews. Kate and I had previously worked together on a study published in the Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian journal titled “Evidence-based practice and library instruction: An assessment of student reference lists.” It is our hope that this infographic will provide students with additional guidance as they increase their evidence-based practice skill set. You can find the APA citation for the infographic at the bottom of the image. We would ask that you kindly share the infographic with those who may find it helpful!

    I’m a little picky, but I noticed that Step 7 suggests the OR operator to use “coping behavior”, but in the example box below you have “copying behavior”. Very different results (copy vs. cope)! Love the infographic!
