Peer Review Journal Article: Summary & Discussion

Use the CSU Online Library to locate and review a scholarly article found in a peer reviewed journal related to analyzing
work, designing jobs, HR planning, or recruiting. In peer reviewed journals, the articles were reviewed by other
professionals in the field to ensure the accuracy and quality of the article, which is ideal when writing an Article Critique.

Research Tip: When researching using the databases, you can limit your search to only peer reviewed articles. To do this,
look for the phrase "limit results," and select "peer reviewed articles."

Once you have selected your article, follow the below criteria:

 There is a minimum requirement of 750 words for the article critique.
 Write a summary of the article. This should be one to three paragraphs in length, depending on the length of the
article. Include the purpose for the article, how research was conducted, the results, and other pertinent
information from the article.
 Discuss the meaning or implication of the results of the study that the article covers. This should be one to two
paragraphs. This is where you offer your opinion on the article. Discuss any flaws with the article, how you think it
could have been better, and what you think it all means.
 Write one paragraph discussing how the author could expand on the results, what the information means in the
big picture, what future research should focus on, or how future research could move the topic forward. Discuss
how knowledge in the area could be expanded.

Cite any direct quotes or paraphrases from the article. Use the author's name, the year of publication and the
page number (for quotes) in the in-text citation. Use APA format.
