THE JOURNAL ARTICLE REVIEW:
The purpose of this assignment is to help you to understand how research is conducted
and reported in the field of biology. As part of this assignment, you will read a peerreviewed article from a scholarly journal. Articles of this type will typically report on
original research or replications of previously conducted experiments, or they will be
literature reviews in which the author(s) present the results of a literature search on a
specific topic. In the latter case, the article will usually be a dissertation on the most
current thinking on a specific topic.
TO LOCATE AN APPROPRIATE ARTICLE:
You can browse the periodical room of the college library for journals that pertain to
biology, limit your search by selecting a topic that we have covered in our course.
Reference librarians are available to help with your search.
Either from home or on campus you can search for articles on EBSCO Host or Google

homepage, or you can also use more general search options. In either case, you should
limit your search to:

United States, including economic, ecologic and family influences. Poverty is defined as “a
condition of misery, hopelessness and dependency.” (Heclo, cited in Wood, 2003). This article
examines previous writings and attempts to develop an understanding of the role the state of
poverty could play in the development of the child.
Next, explain and critique the methods use and/or the findings presented.
The author selected research articles and other writings from the field for review and
analysis. His methods were thorough. His intent was to integrate the findings that had
already been reported into a single article that could be the starting point for future
research. Wood found that…………
And finally, offer your opinion on the value of the study. Will this study further our
knowledge base or the goals of biology, i.e., to describe, explain, predict and influence
behavior? What does it add to our knowledge?
