You will write a research paper that analyzes current research on a specific topic in forensic anthropology that is relevant to one or more topics you are learning about in the course. Using the UMGC Library databases, select a recent research article about forensic anthropology that has been published within the last 6 months.
Here is a list of some of the more popular journals to get you started. However, you can use any journal you want as long as the article you select is relevant to forensic anthropology.
Forensic Science International
Journal of Forensic Sciences
Australian Journal of Forensic Sciences
Science & Justice : Journal of the Forensic Science Society
Forensic Sciences Research
International Journal of Osteoarchaeology
Once you select your article you should research the topic discussed in the article, and also review the same topic in the course learning materials.
For your paper you need to first summarize the topic/research covered in the article. What is the research about, what are the scientific principles underlying the research, and what are the potential contributions of this new research to the field of forensic anthropology.
You should then include a detailed discussion of how your article is relevant to what we have been learning in class – and how it may add to, or replace existing methods in the field. For example, if your article is about a new way to determine ancestry, how does this new way compare with a method currently used to determine ancestry that you learned about in class? How will the new method contribute to the existing knowledge, or how will it replace the existing knowledge? In addition to your chosen article, make sure that you discuss and reference the course learning materials as well.
