Step 2: Summary of Analysis Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following: Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research Approach used to identify and analyze peer-reviewed research . First the topic sentence was identified. Using Walden University Library, database was selected to search for information related to the topic sentence. CINAHL with full text was used as a search database. This database is a great tool for science searches especially when doing nursing research and it also provides several options to narrow the search down into a specific topic.

Strategies that I found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research . When using a search database such as CINAHL, I found it effective to find peer-reviewed articles when short sentences or a group of few words are used in the search box then use the conjunction “OR” to combine two portions of the search if looking for information pertaining to either one of the two sides.

Resource I intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research . The use of library databases will be one of my resources in the future to find peer- reviewed research. This will provide me with the options to limit my search into only peer- reviewed scholarly publications. While a student at Walden university, I prefer to use CINAHL and MEDLINE search databases. I will continue to use library databases even after graduating from Walden university.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
