How to Write a Journal Article Review APA Style
Erica Sweeney, eHow Contributor
A journal article review is a common assignment in college and graduate school. Reviewing journal articles is an important assignment on its own or as part of a much larger research paper. Typically, instructors will give you guidelines on the type of journal articles to review and what to include, but general APA journal article reviews will follow certain conventions. Articles should be from peer-reviewed or scholarly journals and relate to the field of study that the class discusses.

1. Search the library's online databases, such as EbscoHost and others, to find scholarly or peer- reviewed articles. You can also look in indexes available at the library.

2. Read the entire article. Many journal articles can be quite complex and use complicated wording and statistics. You may need to read the article a few times before you get a full grasp of it.

3. Write a citation for the journal article at the top of the review. The citation should follow the American Psychological Association's styleconsult the APA-style manual or the link under Resources for citation information. You will need the title of the article, the journal where the article is published, the volume and issue number, publication date, author's name and page numbers for the article.

4. Write a summary of the article. This should be one to three paragraphs, on the length of the article. Include the purpose for the article, how research was conducted, the results and other pertinent information from the article.

5. Discuss the meaning or implication of the results of the study that the article is about. This should be one to two paragraphs. This is where you offer your opinion on the article. Discuss any flaws with the article, how you think it could have been better and what you think it all means.

6. Write one paragraph discussing how the author could expand on the results, what the information means in the big picture, what future research should focus on or how future research could move the topic forward. Discuss how knowledge in the area could be expanded.

7. Cite any direct quotes or paraphrases from the article. Use the authors name, the year of publication and the page number (for quotes) in the in-text citation.

No plagiarism. Using easy vocabulary is enough.
