Critical analysis of a research paper requires critical or original thinking, which is expressed as a combination of the following: a brief synopsis of the experiments performed, description of deficiencies in the experimental design, comparison of experimental approach with other work, statement of the strengths of the paper, re-interpretation of results, suggestions for future experimentation based on results, and a critical review of authors’ conclusions. Critical analysis of a review paper also requires critical thinking, expressed as a combination of the following: a brief synopsis of the main point of the review, recognition of a specific point of view or bias in presentation of experimental findings, a short list of related topics that could be tied to the review subject, and what the connection is. All journal article reviews must include a single statement of the main finding(s) of the paper, whether it is a research or review paper.
