This guide is for students in BIOD20 to help them locate topics and articles for their journal club assignment, as well as guidance on analyzing articles.

Quick Critique Group Activity

In groups of 5, you will role play as a peer reviewing group.

In your quick critique, 10 minutes, each group will:

  1. Identify the research question or hypothesis in the Abstract and/or Introduction section
  2. Discuss in groups:
    • Is the research question/hypothesis well-defined? Why/Why not?
    • If time allows also answer:
      • Is it an important issue? Think about the purpose, is it relevant? 
      • Do you have a question about the hypothesis? If so what are they?

We will then come back as a group, and do a share around for each article.
