About

Journal articles are peer-reviewed publications that help scholars communicate ideas, theories, empirical analyses, and conclusions.

The ability to critically read journal articles is a skill that is developed with practice. This skill is especially useful when you transfer to a 4-year college or university.

If you are contemplating attending graduate school to earn a Masters, professional, or Doctoral degree, then analyzing journal articles is an essential skill.

Analyzing a journal article is related to reading. Reading is a skill that is developed with practice and is important for your future academic, professional, and personal endeavors.

  • Academically, your reading load will increase with each semester you are in higher education. Building that skill now will serve you well into the future.
  • Professionally, you will have contracts, employee handbooks, technical manuals, financial reports, and other documents to read.
  • Personally, your son, daughter, nephew, or niece will need you to teach them to read.
