  • send the draft to the ORIGINAL AUTHOR saying “could you help me ensure that I describe your work fairly?”.Please note:how the writer avoids a ‘black and white’, right/wrong type of judgement of the positions he reviewsthe comparison the writer establishes in the reviewthe language the writer uses to comment the works he reviews (positive/approval and negative features)how the writer achieves balance between perspectives by, e.g., conceding a point in order to make a stronger point (using ‘while’ & ‘although’)
  • How to identify peer-reviewed articlesMany databases will allow you to limit your search to articles from peer-reviewed journals. Some databases have only peer-reviewed sources. But there will be times when you won't be able to rely on a database to determine whether a journal is peer-reviewed or not. Here are a few characteristics that will help you recognize them on your own:The journal in which the article appears identifies itself as a peer or refereed journal.Articles are reviewed by an editorial or advisory boardAuthors are affiliated with universities, colleges, or prestigious research centers.References are cited at the end of articlesImages are only used when essential to content, rather than as "filler"Sources NOT peer-reviewedNewspapers and popular magazines (Time, U.S. News and World Report) are not peer reviewed.Quasi-scholarly publications, such as Smithsonian, Discover, and National Geographic, may be written by experts, but these publications are not peer reviewed.Internet sources, such as Wikipedia, are not peer reviewed and represent opinion, not necessarily fact.Publications become more respected the further you move from left to right in the following chart:
