Peer Reviewed Social Work Journals

accuracy of information that you might obtain websites like Wikipedia and what form of accountability there is to ensuring that information is up-to-

date, reliable, and valid.
Review the Final Assignment: Article Review and Critique in Week 10 for this class. Note that you will have to locate an empirical research article

from a peer-reviewed journal. Begin to search for an article. Practice navigating the databases in the library by searching topics of interest. (Note:

At this point, you do not need to identify the actual empirical research article. The goal of this assignment is to begin getting comfortable

navigating the databases in the library).

policies.
