VSN White Papers

Types of Research Articles

VSN Senior Research Fellow Maidelina Nazario-Romero has put together a white paper on types of research articles to guide fellow spouses in their searches for relevant research on the military family issues and topics that matter most to them. Research can sometimes seem intimidating to those who do not come from research backgrounds. However, when you learn about the differences between types of articles and studies, they become easier and easier to understand. 


Reading and reviewing research on subjects relevant to your military family has a number of benefits. It empowers you to help evaluate treatment options, contextualize your families' experiences within broader trends, and notice gaps in research that might explain a lack in needed services in your community. Check in with our page often for more white papers to add to your research toolkit.
