Journal critique 1
– Analyze every aspect of the attached article- from the title, to the way they present their research question, to the way they wrote their methodology, to their use of subheadings, to how they wrap up the paper in a thoughtful conclusion. Look at their use of language- consider how they present the process they went through. Does everything make sense to you? How could the author(s) have done better? Read it a few times if you can. Be critical! Even great articles have weaknesses, and even boring/monotonous articles have good points. Remember, you are not critiquing the study, but the actual article itself. This is also not a place to just summarize the article or give your opinion about the topic.
What should a journal critique include?
– No direct quoting from the paper can be in your critique. The entire document must be in APA formatting. That means 12 point font, one inch margins, double spacing, page headers, and a standard APA cover page (see APA examples in module)- but you don’t need an author’s note or abstract.
– APA adherence will be part of your grade! Don’t use bullets or lists in your critique- it should be in paragraph form using full sentences. You don’t need any external resources for this aside from your article.
