A research report can usually be recognized by clearly labeled Method, Results and Discussion sections within the body of the paper.

You may have to click on the journal title on a couple of screens before you see the DOI number.  Write down the DOI number of the journal below. Look through the journal for an interesting research report that you can make sense of. You may have to look at several issues to find one you like. Read through the article, paying particular attention to the Method section, so that you can answer the remaining questions.
