Crime Science Television programs
Waver, R., Salamonson, Y., Koch, J., & Porter, G. (2012). The CSI effect at university: forensic science students’ television viewing and perceptions of ethical issues. Australian Journal of forensic sciences, 44(4), 381–391.
The article talks about how some Crime Science Television programs like CSI may influence lay Jurors forensic evidence consideration during trials. The confusion is brought about by the forensic evidence and the fictional idealistic of the forensic evidence confusion. One of the significant strengths of the articles is the descriptive design method of data collection as it gets the clear students thoughts on the forensic science television programs. The sample section also makes it have complete coverage of the point of discussion as the sample is from a large university and the fact that all the students in the undergraduate program participated in the survey and therefore making the sample size large enough to be used for generalizations and hence reducing chances of errors. The method of data collection and data analysis and presentation are quite clear and thus making it substantial and enough to be used in coming up with the sound conclusion of the study. The article is helpful in my research as I might gather the data collection and data analysis strategies as used in this document and therefore making my work more detailed and credible.
