Application of Theory to Research:
Find two published, original sources in which researchers used the theory as a framework, and/or the concept of interest to support their research. These articles must have been published within the past 10 years. Discuss how those researchers utilized the theory (and/or the concept of interest) to support their research. Include in the discussion of each study the purpose of the study, how the researchers used the theory in their study, how the researchers used the concept of interest in their study, and how the researchers theoretically and operationally defined the concept of interest.
