The critical review is a writing task that asks
you to summarize and evaluate a text. The
critical review can be of a book, a chapter, or
a journal article. Writing the critical review
usually requires you to read the selected text
in detail and to also read other related texts
so that you can present a fair and reasonable
evaluation of the selected text.
At university, to be critical does not mean to
criticize in a negative manner. Rather it requires
you to question the information and opinions in a
text and present your evaluation or judgment of
the text. To do this well, you should attempt to
understand the topic from different perspectives
(i.e. read related texts) and in relation to the
theories, approaches and frameworks in your
course.
The length of an introduction is usually one paragraph
for a journal article review and two or three
paragraphs for a longer book review. Include a few
opening sentences that announce the author(s) and
the title, and briefly explain the topic of the text.
Present the aim of the text and summarise the main
finding or key argument. Conclude the introduction
with a brief statement of your evaluation of the text.
This can be a positive or negative evaluation or, as is
usually the case, a mixed response.
Present a summary of the key points along with
a limited number of examples. You can also
briefly explain the author’s purpose/intentions
throughout the text and you may briefly
describe how the text is organized. The
summary should only make up about a third of
the critical review.
The critique should be a balanced discussion and evaluation
of the strengths, weakness and notable features of the text.
Remember to base your discussion on specific criteria. Good
reviews also include other sources to support your evaluation
(remember to reference).
You can choose how to sequence your critique. Here are some
examples to get you started:
•Most important to least important conclusions you make
about the text.
•If your critique is more positive than negative, then present
the negative points first and the positive last.
•If your critique is more negative than positive, then present
the positive points first and the negative last.
•If there are both strengths and weakness for each criterion
you use, you need to decide overall what your judgment is.
•In long reviews, you can address each criteria you choose in a
paragraph, including both negative and positive points. For very
short critical reviews (one page or less) where your comments will
be briefer, include a paragraph of positive aspects and another
of negative.
•You can also include recommendations for how the text can be
improved in terms of ideas, research approach; theories or
frameworks used can also be included in the critique section.
Conclusion
•This is usually a very short paragraph.
•Restate your overall opinion of the text.
•Briefly present recommendations.
•If necessary some further qualification or explanation
of your judgment can be included. This can help your
critique sound fair and reasonable.
References
If you have used other sources in you review you
should also include a list of references at the end of the
review.

Critical review of a research article

  • 1.
  • 2. The critical review is a writing task that asks you to summarize and evaluate a text. The critical review can be of a book, a chapter, or a journal article. Writing the critical review usually requires you to read the selected text in detail and to also read other related texts so that you can present a fair and reasonable evaluation of the selected text. At university, to be critical does not mean to criticize in a negative manner. Rather it requires you to question the information and opinions in a text and present your evaluation or judgment of the text. To do this well, you should attempt to understand the topic from different perspectives (i.e. read related texts) and in relation to the theories, approaches and frameworks in your course.
  • 3. The length of an introduction is usually one paragraph for a journal article review and two or three paragraphs for a longer book review. Include a few opening sentences that announce the author(s) and the title, and briefly explain the topic of the text. Present the aim of the text and summarise the main finding or key argument. Conclude the introduction with a brief statement of your evaluation of the text. This can be a positive or negative evaluation or, as is usually the case, a mixed response.
  • 4. Present a summary of the key points along with a limited number of examples. You can also briefly explain the author’s purpose/intentions throughout the text and you may briefly describe how the text is organized. The summary should only make up about a third of the critical review.
  • 5. The critique should be a balanced discussion and evaluation of the strengths, weakness and notable features of the text. Remember to base your discussion on specific criteria. Good reviews also include other sources to support your evaluation (remember to reference). You can choose how to sequence your critique. Here are some examples to get you started: •Most important to least important conclusions you make about the text. •If your critique is more positive than negative, then present the negative points first and the positive last. •If your critique is more negative than positive, then present the positive points first and the negative last. •If there are both strengths and weakness for each criterion you use, you need to decide overall what your judgment is.
  • 6. •In long reviews, you can address each criteria you choose in a paragraph, including both negative and positive points. For very short critical reviews (one page or less) where your comments will be briefer, include a paragraph of positive aspects and another of negative. •You can also include recommendations for how the text can be improved in terms of ideas, research approach; theories or frameworks used can also be included in the critique section.
  • 7. Conclusion •This is usually a very short paragraph. •Restate your overall opinion of the text. •Briefly present recommendations. •If necessary some further qualification or explanation of your judgment can be included. This can help your critique sound fair and reasonable. References If you have used other sources in you review you should also include a list of references at the end of the review.
  • 8.
