Any criminal justice topic
Select a criminal justice related topic and use the University of North Florida Library to find one qualitative article and one quantitative article on this topic. Ensure that these are peer-reviewed journal articles. Introduce your topic and state why it is important. Provide APA reference information for each of the two articles (one qualitative, one quantitative). In your own words, provide a summary of the methodology, findings, and limitations of each of the two articles. Each summary of methodology should include information such as the sample size, sampling method, description of the subjects included in the sample, where the study took place, if the study is cross-sectional or longitudinal, and how the data were collected. Generally speaking, describe the strengths and weaknesses of qualitative research. Next, describe the strengths and weaknesses of quantitative research. Finally, if you were going to conduct your own research study on this topic, which methodological approach (qualitative or quantitative) would you choose? Justify your response. Your justification should take into account information such as time, resources, the population you are trying to describe, validity, generalizability, and how your study would contribute to the existing literature on this topic.
