Session III: Research Reviews—Writing with Purpose


This 3-session series is designed to be interactive and provide you with guidance on how to effectively read, critique, and write about journal articles.  We will primarily focus on quantitative study design and how to understand the statistical analyses found in articles so you can synthesize articles for your Learning Achievements and dissertation. 

Session Overview

So, you’ve read a ton of articles on your topic.  Now how do you integrate all of them into a coherent review?  In this session, we will explore how to write about journal articles for the various purposes of research synthesis.  Students will leave with an understanding of how we use research articles to craft an argument for our own research questions, along with identifying gaps and analyzing controversy in the extant literature.    

Topics we will cover:

  • What to include and how to write about journal articles
  • Evaluating and synthesizing vs. summarizing research
  • Using an article for multiple Learning Achievements
  • Crafting an argument

What you will take away:

  • How to shift from summarizing to synthesizing and evaluating
  • New ideas for building your argument to justify your own study
  • Answers to your burning questions!
