In your introduction, you should also briefly describe the purpose and nature of the study and, if applicable, its theoretical framework.

If you are reviewing a research study, organize the body of your critique according to the paper’s structure. Start with a brief description and analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the research design and methodology. For example: How does the method reflect other studies of the same topic? (sample, data collection, setting). What makes this method feasible? How realistic is it? How does the method address questions of validity?

How will these limitations affect your ability to use this data to answer your research question? Describe the results by answering: How were the results interpreted?
