The Scientific Method and Scientific Literature Research

The scientific method was reviewed and a much more strong emphasis on literature research. Learned how to research using various databases to see how the different databases can produce different results using the same search criteria. While I've looked at some journal articles before I did not perform any specific research until at this time …
