Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
In this assignment you will submit a review and evaluation of a single article, relevant to your
dissertation research interest, that has been published in the past five years in a peer-reviewed
journal. In this Journal Article Review you will:
Identify the research question or central thesis of the article;
Explain the method used to support the claims of the article
State whether the method is quantitative or qualitative and give a brief explanation of the methodological approach.
State what data is collected. (For example: Is it a public opinion poll? An analysis of historical budget data? A forecast of future COVID infections? An explanation of congressional voting patterns by ideology?)
Explain and evaluate the conclusions drawn from the study
Assess whether the conclusions drawn by the article’s authors seem sound based on the data they present.
Identify any weaknesses or oversights of the article.
Your Journal Article Review Assignment should be presented in current APA format. It should
be at least five pages of content in length, not including your cover page. You do not need to
include a works cited page as the only item you are expected to cite is the article you are
reviewing. Instead, begin your first content page with the citation of the source you are
reviewing, presented in current APA format.
