Evidence is important in understanding and making decisions regarding public health. Empirical articles serve as credible sources of support because they provide or describe evidence based on research. Empirical articles describe original research or the results of a study.
Research a public health issue of your choice. Choose three empirical articles related to your issue. Evaluate the three articles using the “Research Article Comparison Matrix.”
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
