PSY 3210 – Journal Article Review Guidelines

 

  • Select an article on any subject pertaining to the psychology of women. The article

should ideally be from the last five years but published no more than 10 years ago. It

MUST be from a professional/academic journal (See suggested journal titles below). The

article must present the findings of a research study or studies conducted by the

authors.

 

  • Provide a proper APA style reference. Example:

 

Hyde, J. S. (2005). The gender similarities hypothesis. American Psychologist, 60(6), 581-592.

 

  • Provide a brief summary of the study describing the topic, question, or hypothesis/es

being investigated; the participants; basic info about the method or design; and the

findings. (approximately 1 paragraph)

 

  • Identify the strengths and limitations of the research/article. Do the author’s conclusions

seem valid and appropriate to you? Does the author identify limitations of the study and

suggest ideas for future research to build upon the findings? Are there additional

suggestions you might make for further study?

 

  • Provide your reactions to the findings – did they surprise you or challenge previous

assumptions you might have had about the topic? If so, how? Did the findings inform

you in some way – what did you learn? Identify any questions or concerns you may have

about the study, the results, and the author’s conclusions.

 

  • Your review should be approximately 2-3 pages in length, using 12-pt Times Roman or

Courier font, and be double-spaced.
