Please find sample attached.

Prepare a three to four page list (thirty to fifty sources) of scholarly journal articles that relate to your research question. (Any business research question). These should be listed following the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition. You need to ensure that you are using scholarly, peer-reviewed journals for you reference list. You need to visit the section of Webliography that covers the differentiation of peer reviewed/scholarly journals from other sources. Be sure to include journals that present multiple sides of the questions, both pro and con. You should plan on having three to four pages of journals in your bibliography. These will be graded on your adherence to APA Style, utilization of peer-reviewed journals, and the adequacy with which they fairly represent the views on the subject.

If you use the Library databases, you can usually check a box in the search criteria to get scholarly results. You can also check the information on the journal to see if it is a scholarly journal, a trade journal, or a popular press publication. You may use up to 10% from non-scholarly sources. Books are not considered to be scholarly sources for this class. It is not that they are not important sources, but they don't usually go through the peer review process and are generally based on older information.

Empirical Scholarly Journal Article Critique

A reader should be able to understand your critique without having to read the original published study. Therefore, you will need to briefly summarize the study. However, your analysis must go beyond this summary! Consider the following questions in your analysis clearly, succinctly, and in your own words. Be sure to support your statements with thorough explanations and cited references.

Your critique will include the following:

1.Bibliographic Entry for the article in APA format. (Do not copy the whole reference list. Simply create a reference list entry for your article.)

2.Start with a summary of the article. This does not mean copy word for word or explain every detail. No direct quotes should be included.
1.Question being investigated and why the authors think it is interesting
2.Hypothesis being tested, and how it was operationalized (i.e., methodology: independent and dependent variables, control conditions, etc.)
3.Summary of the findings, and how the authors interpreted them
4.The conclusions presented by the authors.
The summary should be 2 pages in length.

3.Discuss the merits as well as deficits of the article:
1.Do you think that they asked the question right, and is it an interesting question?
2.Is the hypothesis testable, and does the operationalization make sense? Were the independent and dependent variables well-chosen?
3.Was the report of the findings complete and clear? Do you agree with the interpretations? Why or why not.
4.Was there enough support for the conclusions?
If you see deficits, always clarify what would be a better approach. This section of the critique should be 2- 3 pages in length

4.Making connections: Does the article add to knowledge in the field? Is it well-balanced or is there bias in the findings? Are there unanswered questions in your mind? What future research would you suggest and why?
This section of the critique should be 1 page in length
