Practice Paper Review

Purpose of the Assignment

This assignment will give you practice in writing a good review for a research publication. Research is often peer-reviewed. The papers you read, were once reviewed by a set of reviewers who had to make a decision about accepting or rejecting the paper. Writing reviews is not easy. Professionally critiquing work from others is a difficult, yet important task. It takes practice to learn how to give advice, and point out mistakes, while remaining positive and professional. Remember, each of you will be on the receiving side of many reviews over the course of your career.



You will be given the choice of one paper to review, from a set of accepted papers (links below). For your assignment, you will write a review for the paper. Submit your review to t-square.
