Identify how the traditionalist, interpretive, or critical-interpretivist perspective shaped how the research was conducted and the author(s) approach to the research.

For this assignment, locate an academic journal article that uses a traditionalist, interpretive, or critical-interpretivist perspective to examine a communication issue in organizations. In 750 to 1,000 words, complete the following:
• Summarize the research the author(s) conducted.
• Identify how the traditionalist, interpretive, or critical-interpretivist perspective shaped how the research was conducted and the author(s) approach to the research.
• Provide the citation for the article in APA format.
The first thing to remember, is that a research paradigm does not refer to the methodology used in the work. While there are patterns in the methodologies used by the paradigms, they are not a reliable indicator of the paradigm used. What determines the paradigm? The scholar’s metatheoretical values are what determine the paradigm. This usually isn’t stated outright. It is assumed that readers of scholarship will be able to infer the paradigm by reading the article. As the reader, you need to infer the axiology, epistemology, and ontology.
