Written Assignment: Journal Article Review
Instructions: Find a peer-reviewed article from a professional journal on a health care management topic of special interest to you and also related to one of the topics covered in this course prior to Mid-Term. The article should be published in a peer-reviewed professional journal on the topic assigned. Refer to the features of a peer-reviewed journal handout provided in this module.
Your assignment is to read the article, then critically analyze it and write a review of the article, following the guidelines provided in the handouts.
Note that you will not just be summarizing the article, you will be analyzing the quality and relevance of the information provided and the presentation of the article by the author. Many students write excellent summaries but never actually critique and analyze the article. Your Review should start with a summary of the article, but the majority of your paper should be YOUR review of the article.
You will be submitting a 3-4 page, approximately 1000 words, formally written Journal Article Review. In addition to the 3-4 page review of the article, your paper should have a cover page and a reference page. Refer to Library resources listed below for APA formatting guidelines. Review the handouts provided before starting your review. The attached guidelines and sample format will help you to help you develop your paper. Review the rubric to determine how your review will be graded.
Your Journal Article Review will be evaluated based upon:
appropriate article selection
appropriate format, length and style
proper grammar, spelling and articulate writing
a well-organized discussion of the major points of the article
a discussion of your thoughts and opinions
a discussion of the relevance to your own profession
what you learned from the article
Use the attached Journal Article Review grading rubric as a guide to make sure that you are meeting the expected requirements. A helpful article on “How to Review a Journal Article” can assist you. The Cardiopulmonary Sciences LibGuide , Radiologic and Imaging Sciences LibGuide and Valencia’s Library offer research and writing resources that may be helpful. There is also librarian assistance available if needed.
