Professionals in all disciplines keep their knowledge of the field current. There are various ways to accomplish this, such as attending conferences or networking with other professionals. However, the most efficient way to learn about new developments on an ongoing and relatively cost-effective basis is to read published research articles. Yet, this option is heavily underutilized by a great number of professionals in all fields. The common reason stated across disciplines is that for those who are not trained researchers, such publications are too difficult to read because of the complex language and the statistics involved.While these assumptions are factually correct, they do not need to keep you from being comfortable and fluent reading research. The solution is to learn to identify and then focus on strategic pieces of information within each article. “A Practical Guide to Reading Research Articles,” in the resources this week, is a tool to help you learn this process. This assignment provides you with an opportunity to use this reading as a tool to practice and hone your research reading skills. Step-by-step instructions will guide you through the reading process so that you learn to apply this tool in a systematic manner.Follow the steps below to complete this portion of the application assignment:Review the article “A Practical Guide to Reading Research Articles”Keep the Appendix in the course text nearby and use it as a guide to terminology that might be new to you and that you may encounter when reading research articlesChose one of the research articles listed below.Here is the article: Article: Sayfan, L., & Lagattuta, K.
