HLT505 Research Skills Guide: Sharing articles in HLT505

A guide to searching for research articles for HLT505

Sharing Your Articles

For each of your four articles (two qualitative and two quantitative) you MUST share a permalink to the article into the relevant HLT505 forum. Each link MUST be generated within a CSU library database.

There are instructions on how to do this at the Library's webpage on Creating Links to Resources. It is necessary to follow these instructions so that your links will work off-campus.

PubMed is not a subscription database so creating a permalink to a PubMed record is a little different. Simply locate the PubMed id number (PMID) which appears at the bottom of each record, and add it to this base URL:


Optional extra: attach a PDF of the article. This would require you to download and save the article PDF to your computer. When you are saving a downloaded PDF, it is a smart habit to label the file with the first author's surname, year of publication, and a few key words.

Further optional extra: provide a complete APA style reference for the article. Use the link to APA style guidance in your HLT505 site, or use the Referencing at CSU webpage. Referencing is not an assessable component of this hurdle task, but your teacher can give you formative feedback on your referencing style if you choose to practise your APA referencing in this task.
