As you learned in Unit 4, one indicator of bad science reporting in the popular press is the lack of reliance on peer-reviewed studies. Therefore, when reading a popular press article, it’s important to find out if the popular press article is based on results reported in a scholarly article. Good popular press articles indicate they’re based on results from a scholarly article by providing a link to those scholarly articles. For example, look at the first page of Kaplan’s (2013) popular press article “Most Depressing Brain Finding Ever” and the first page of Mooney’s (2013) popular press article, “Science Confirms: Politics Wrecks Your Ability to do Math.” Both of these two popular press articles link to the study on which they’re based with words such as “According to a new psychology paper, …” “The study, …” and “… research paper …”. Other popular press articles link to the study’s scholarly article at the end of their popular press article. For example, take another look at Fradera’s (2017) article, “How Much Are Readers Misled by Headlines that Imply Correlational Findings Are Causal?,” which you read during Unit 4. Go to the last page of Fradera’s (2017) popular press article to see where the author links to the research study on which the popular press article is based. The link is given as “How Readers Understand Causal and Correlational Expressions Used in News Headlines.” However, note that the link given to the scholarly article on which Fradera’s popular press article is based leads to only the journal article’s abstract. That’s because the scholarly article is not open access; it’s paywalled. If readers of the popular press article don’t have access to a university library, they won’t be able to read more than the abstract of the scholarly article, unless they’re willing to pay $11.95. Readers who won’t be able to read the entire scholarly article (unless they pay $11.95) include journalists who want to write popular press articles about that scholarly article. Find ten popular press articles on topics that interest you. For each of the ten popular press articles: Identify whether the popular press article is based on the results reported in a scholarly article. If the popular press article is based on the results reported in a scholarly article, identify whether the popular press article links to that scholarly article. If the popular press article is based on a scholarly article and if the popular press article links to that scholarly article, identify whether that scholarly article is open access or paywalled. Go to the Unit 5: Assignment #2 Discussion Board and make a new post in which you list (in a numbered list) the ten popular press articles. For each of the ten popular press articles: Provide a link to the popular press article (use the name of the popular press article for the text that you use for your embedded link, e.g., “Most Depressing Brain Finding Ever”); If the popular press article provided a link to the scholarly article, provide that link to the scholarly article (using the exact wording that was used in the popular press article, e.g., “According to a new psychology paper”) AND tell us whether the scholarly article is available through open access or only through a (university library) paywall. To get your numbering — for your numbered list — you will need to do one of the following: type the numbers into the textbox yourself OR ask the Discussion Board to number your list for you (by clicking on the numbering icon) OR type the numbers into your Word or Google doc yourself, rather than relying on Word or Google doc to automatically number your list for you. (The numbers that Word or Google doc automatically add do not always copy over to the Discussion Board.)
