SISE 2010

A library guide supporting coursework in Introduction to Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship

Today's Session

Your research project explores one social or environmental issue related to your team's systems map selection. It is a culmination of in-class activities and assignments that are developing strategies for researching and understanding the impacts and causes of a social/environmental problem that you see in the world.

Today's session is to help you connect your arguments to scholarship and evidence. We will briefly consider how to identify, evaluate, incorporate, and provide attribution for empirical research and information about the problem from rigorous academic sources. 

Your goal is to 

  • include at least 10 high quality research sources in your paper
    (7 peer-reviewed articles and 3 other authoritative sources)
  • acknowledge the scholarly conversation by citing those sources using APA style

Your Goals

  1. Utilize online databases offered by Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.
  2. Differentiate peer review articles, other authoritative sources, and popular sources of information.
  3. Identify research limitations and potential bias in peer-reviewed research and other authoritative sources.
