Scientific Journal Article Review

Scientific research is conducted in an attempt to answer a pressing question within a specific discipline. Following completion of a study, results are generally submitted to a peer reviewed journal and, if accepted, are published for other researchers to read and build upon. Thus, being able to read and understand scientific journal articles is a vital skill in the biological and environmental sciences. For this assignment, you are to read the article “Assessment of nitrogen flows into the Cuban landscape,” written by Julio Baisre, and published in the peer reviewed journal, Biogeochemistry in 2006. Then, write a paper summarizing the article by addressing each of the four topics below.

  1. Summarize the question being addressed in the research and describe the methods used to evaluate this question.
  2. Summarize the researcher’s findings and whether or not those findings answer the questions being addressed.
  3. Identify what research has been conducted on the subject. Refer to the ProQuest database in the Ashford Library to find and describe some of the similar studies recently published.
  4. Often the results of one study lead to the beginning of another. Predict additional questions that might be raised by the article’s results.

While you may not be able to understand all of the technical language in the article, try to focus on the big picture, such as methods utilized, results identified, and the overall message being conveyed.

Your paper must be three to five pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Additionally, you must use at least three scholarly sources to provide sufficient details of the topics listed above. All sources must be properly cited in text as well as on the reference page.

As part of the Hearing Conservation Program, the employer is required to evaluate the effectiveness of any hearing protection provided to employees. Hearing protectors are rated using a system developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), know as the noise reduction rating (NRR). The NRR is derived in a laboratory setting. There is some controversy about the reported accuracy of the NRR. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) method for evaluating the effectiveness of hearing protection includes subtracting seven from the NRR to account for “real-world” versus a laboratory setting.

For OSHA compliance officers, OSHA divides the result in half before subtracting from the exposure level to account for individual improperly inserting the hearing protection. OSHA does not currently require employers to divide the result in half.




1. Which method of evaluation of hearing protection devices do you think employers should be required to use and why?


2. Do you think there is a better way to evaluate hearing protection devices? Please explain your response.

Unit 5 Safety

You have been hired as a consultant to help a local machine shop solve a hazardous noise problem. The shop is 10,000 square feet in area, with 12-foot-high concrete block walls and a flat metal roof. Inside the shop are two band saws, two metal lathes, three drill presses, one milling machine, and three abrasive grinders. The six employees work at benches located throughout the shop, using a variety of pneumatic-powered hand tools and non-powered tools. A recent noise survey found sound pressure levels exceeding 100dBA in some parts of the shop. All employees were monitored for noise exposure over an eight-hour workday, and the calculated TWA for noise for the employees ranged from 88dBA to 97dBA. Determine a possible control measure for each of the six levels in the hierarchy of controls (p. 273 in your textbook), and explain the reasoning behind each choice. Which control measure(s) would you recommend to the machine shop manager?

Your response must be at least 200 words in length.
