When you're reading and summarizing your articles from peer-reviewed journals, look for key information like:
- What are the main hypotheses or thesis?
- Why is this research important?
- What are the theoretical perspectives of the authors?
- Were the research measures and procedures appropriate for studying the stated hypothesis?
- What were the key research findings?
- Are the authors' conclusions supported by data or other evidence? Why or why not?
- Did the authors show any bias?
