A research paper describes original research that has been conducted in the study (i.e., the researchers are publishing their findings for the first time). For this project, you will be critiquing an original research article that utilizes behavioral ideas (e.g., treatment of autism with behavioral techniques, exposure therapy for social anxiety). Visit the Keiser University Library and find a scholarly research article in one of the Psychology Journals. Using the article you find in the library, complete a critical review of the article. Be sure to use APA format.
A good paper would start off with a brief introduction of the article (do not copy the abstract). Describe the researchers' questions, how they attempted to answer them (i.e., study population, their methods, and any unique features of the study), and their findings. Then critique the article with the following questions:
- Do you have confidence in the researchers’ findings (i.e., were there critical flaws in the study design, questions of confounds that might have occurred in the study)?
- Does the study generalize to other people that were not the subject of the research (e.g., college student study generalizing to everyone, study in the US applying to other cultures)?
- What does the study mean in the big picture and how does it apply to society in general (i.e., how does it impact society in general)?
