The Tips on how to read a research article class will be focusing on biomedical science articles, the type of research that biomedicine considers to be most powerful. There are many scientific questions that can be asked and many ways of answering.
Biomedical science, like any discipline, has a set of rules and terminology that is applied to support the most relevant type of information content for them.
These rules lead to a certain format and control what type of information makes it into the article, and what types of information are left out.
Because it is considered the highest form of evidence, this is the type of research we should know how to read so that we can be in conversations with legislators and allied health care providers. We hope the skills presented in this class help you to become more confident when you communicate about research and evidence.
