As a part of your Information Retrieval Paper, you will begin development of a research question using PICO format.  Chapter 9 of the Role Development textbook explains PICO. Be sure to develop your research question and then just below your research question delineate what the P, I, C, and O components of your question are.

For this Module 3 Assignment you will prepare a Title Page in proper APA formatfor your Information Retrieval Paper, identify three peer-reviewed articles, and summarize each article using APA format.

It may be helpful to look at the outline for the entire paper before you begin this Module’s Assignment. Assignments in this Module plus in Modules 4 and 5 will address the Information Retrieval Paper.

  • Post your research question, and explain why you selected the question and how you developed it
