Journal Article Review
Developed by Tom Calo

The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize you with research-oriented academic journals that form the basis for much academic research and writing.  This assignment will also be helpful to you in the writing of another course assignment to write a research paper.  Each student is expected to review and summarize one journal article relative to the course content and objectives.  The article must be related directly to a topic within the scope of the course objectives and content, and must be a peer-reviewed, full-text article.  Your paper should include a description of the research purpose/question, research methodology, and findings.  Most importantly, provide your personal analysis and critique, to include a description of the applicability of the findings for this course.

Your paper will be evaluated on the basis of the criteria summarized above with respect to your analysis of the full scope of this article.  This will comprise 60% of the assignment grade.  The remainder of the assignment grade will be based on your analysis and critiques with respect to how this research can inform your understanding of this issue regarding HR in organizations.
