A review of an article is your evaluation of an article’s strengths, weaknesses, and validity. You are informing readers of the article’s value through explanation, interpretation, and analysis. You must provide information that will allow the reader to make a value judgement about the article. The following describes how to write an article review: • Reviews should begin with a full bibliographic citation (author, title of journal article, name of journal, volume, issue, date of publication pages). • Your review should summarize the article and critique it on the information it gives you. • What is the purpose of the article (main points – major theme)? • Critique means your substantiated opinion of the article, including one possible use in your employment environment. • What are the strengths, weaknesses and validity of the article? • Does the author accomplish her/is objective? Does the author do what she/he has set out to do? • Spelling. Good grammar and neatness count! • If you quote the author, use appropriate APA style quotations and citations but quote very sparingly. • Use 12-point type, Times New Roman, Tahoma, Courier New or Franklin Book Gothic. • Double-space, left justify only, use a one-inch margin of all four sides of your text, avoid abbreviations such as etc. • Since this is a review of one article, no page citations are necessary. • Running head – your name and name of the article in the header on each page • Reviews should be 2-3 pages in length and only include one article per review.
