Nonhuman primates
Overview: for this assignment, you will need to summarize a peer-reviewed, primary source article (an article that describes an original experiment) on a topic of interest to you, that is related to evolutionary/biological anthropology.
But what is “a peer-reviewed, primary source article”?
primary source: an article from a scientific journal that describes an original experiment.
These papers will have materials and methods (or simply “methods”) sections that describe how the author(s) conducted their experiment/study. These are reviewed by peers (experts on the topic) before they are published. These types of papers almost always follow the format pictured above (title, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusion).
Examples of articles that are not peer-reviewed and/or primary source:
secondary source: These are written for the general public, and summarize results from primary sources. These do not have materials and methods sections because they are not describing the original experiment in great detail, rather only the results. These are not peer-reviewed.
Review papers: these are peer-reviewed papers that summarize primary sources on a particular topic. They are aimed at experts rather than the general public.
