Investigate professional journals and locate two articles pertaining to organizational behavior that interest you. You are to critique each article according to the instructions below. The articles should be less than three-years-old. You are to use the ProQuest Central database found in the University of Arizona Global Campus library.
Each three-page critique (a total of six pages for both critiques) must include the following three parts. Include both article reviews into one document for submission to Waypoint (do not submit two documents).
Complete the following three parts:
Identify the articles
Provide the reader with enough information about your articles so they will be able to locate the article. Describe your search process.
Summarize the articles
Identify the main points that the authors have tried to establish (i.e., 1, 2, 3, or first, second, third). There normally will be three to five main points per article. If you are summarizing a court case, you should discuss the following:
What provision of the law was at issue? Briefly state the facts of the case.
What legal tests were applied?
Were there any unusual elements in the case?
Provide sufficient information to demonstrate you understand the content of the article.
Critique the article
Provide your reaction (insightful, critical, and logical) to the points that the authors tried to make or an overall critique of the entire articles. A simple statement of agreement or disagreement is not sufficient. While you may make such a statement by way of introduction to your reaction, you must clearly and logically state the reasons for your position.
