DOC 714S University of Phoenix Week 4 Health and Medicine Article Discussion

I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Question 1:

An article’s abstract “contains enough essential information about the article to be able to assess its merit and relevance…and you can discern and anticipate the logic of the author’s argument before even reading through the full article” (Shon, 2015, p. 34).

In your own words, what is the essential information and logic of the author’s article/argument?

Question 2:

A social science journal article’s introduction “is like a blueprint and a map: it lays out the itinerary of an article’s path of logical travel…and are organized and structured into predictable patterns” (Shon, 2015, p, 41).

  • How do the authors organize the introduction? Do the subheadings and article’s discussion follow the “blueprint and map” outlined in the introduction?

As you reflect on what you have learned about writing an introduction, what might you do differently in writing introductions as you progress through the dissertation process?
