Then the structure of the review should include the following sections:
Introduction Review Section — The length of an introduction is usually one or two paragraphs, and briefly explains the topic of the article. Begin by providing initial identification of the article (author, title of article, year of publication, and other details that seem important,) and an indication of the major aspects of the article you will be discussing.
Summary Section — Present precise summary of the article’s main claims, findings, and arguments. Discuss the main aim of the article and summarize the main finding or key argument. Conclude the introduction with a brief statement of your evaluation of the article. This can be a positive or negative evaluation or, as is usually the case, a mixed response. The summary should only make up about a third of the critical review. The author’s argument needs to be presented clearly and be objectively summarized so that the reader can recognize the theoretical approach and the range of material covered.
Assessment Review and Discussion section — The critique should be a balanced discussion and evaluation of the strengths, weakness and notable features of the article. Remember to base your discussion on specific criteria. Good reviews also include other sources to support your evaluation (remember to reference or use examples). In this section you are required to question the information and opinions in the article and present your evaluation or judgement of the main themes of the article. Provide a critical discussion of the key issues raised in the article. In this section you need to clearly present the author main points or arguments before you express your own opinion. In this section, you need to indicate the main position or claim that your review will make in response to the article, and try to use relevant examples to support your arguments. You need to develop your review in relation to aspects of the article, offering thoughtful, well-supported proof for your claim(s) (examples). Make sure to provide reasons for your agreement or disagreement of the article supported by relevant example, theoretical framework or your own relevant working experience.
Summary of the review and Assessment Section — final evaluation of the overall contribution that the article has made to your understanding of the topic (and maybe its importance to the development of knowledge in this particular area or discipline).Summarize the main points made in the review stage in terms of your assessment of each aspect of the main points. Provide your overall assessment of the article and the basis of your agreement or disagreement with the main points of the articles. This should include your final evaluation of the overall contribution that the article has made to your understanding of the topic and maybe its importance to the development of knowledge in this particular area or discipline.
