sociology discussion


Find two academic articles that you want to use in your final paper. Find these articles through the library website in the research databases. Academic articles generally have abstract, introduction, methods, results, and discussion sections.  Search for articles that have at least some of these sections, particularly the abstract. Use the list below of some journals that carry sociology articles, or you can search for other journals to use for this assignment.

  • Journal of Sociology
  • American Journal of Sociology
  • American Sociological Review
  • Annual Review of Sociology
  • Journal of Health and Social Behavior
  • Current Sociology
  • Gender and Society
  • Sociological Theory
  • The Sociological Quarterly
  • Ethnic and Racial Studies

See the attached PowerPoint for more information about where and how to search for academic articles. One of the articles should be related to the theory you think would be helpful in developing a hypothesis. The other article should be related to the theory you think would not be helpful in developing a hypothesis. 

Turn in an APA formatted citation for each of your articles. A citation includes the author(s) of the article, the year of publication, the title, the journal name, the journal volume, and the page numbers at a minimum. Also, include a half-page summary for each article. Your half-page summary should include an explanation of how each article relates to each theory.  Use the attached link for assistance in formatting your citation page.
