How’s the peer review going? Any interesting thoughts about the review process? Has it taught you anything that may be useful for assignment 4 or other research?
I just finished my review. I did one of the survey articles: Privacy and Modern Advertising: Most US Internet Users Want “Do Not Track” to Stop Collection of Data About Their Online Activities. I don’t plan on using surveys for assignment 4, but I thought this sounded like the most interesting article.
One of the things I learned while doing the review was how important explaining your assumptions and technique is in writing the paper. Many of my critiques with the paper was stuff that I think was based on my confusion because I didn’t understand why they decided to use the methods they used. It harks back to stuff that both Luker and Knight talked about in the first or second weeks readings about the importance of writing throughout the whole research process. Otherwise, it`s easy to forget to include those things in your final write-up. Reviewing this paper helped drive home that point for me so it`s definitely something I need to remember while writing up assignment 4.
