In Unit VII, you will be required to submit a research paper based upon a topic related to epidemiology. Your research paper will need to be at least six pages in length, and you will need at least five scholarly references to support the argument surrounding your topic, which was identified in your Unit I Topic Selection assignment. This unit’s assignment will be incorporated into your final research paper, which will be submitted in Unit VII. This series of related assignments is designed to enable provision of feedback and to help ensure that you are on track with your progress before you move on to the related assignment in Unit V and then submit your final research paper in Unit VII.

For this assignment, you will identify at least three peer-reviewed, scholarly articles based on the topic that you selected in Unit I. At least one of the articles must be from the CSU Online Library. This assignment is the next step in writing your research paper, which will be submitted in Unit VII.


After reading the articles you select, you will analyze them and write a formal literature review that is at least two pages in length, not counting the title page and references page. Address each of the following areas in your literature review.

  • Identify your topic and thesis.
  • Identify your research question.
  • Describe the source(s) of data that you will use to identify the population that you intend to use for your research.
  • Explain the design that will be used for your study and why it is the best design for your study.
  • As they apply to your topic, discuss the following elements:
    • sources of epidemiologic health data for a population and 
    • characteristics of case-control, cohort, cross-sectional, and ecological studies.

Please adhere to APA Style when writing your literature review, and include in-text citations and references for all resources that are used.
