Probably need some kind of structure / guidelines / scaffolding.

(typical peer review questions)

  • Is the research question clear?
  • • Was the approach appropriate?
  • • Is the study design, methods and analysis appropriate to the question being studied?
  • • Is the study innovative or original?
  • • Does the study challenge existing paradigms or add to existing knowledge?
  • • Does it develop novel concepts?
  • • Does it matter?
  • • Are the methods described clearly enough for other researchers to replicate?
  • • Are the methods of statistical analysis and level of significance appropriate?
  • • Could presentation of the results be improved and do they answer the question?
  • • If humans, human tissues or animals are involved, was ethics approval gained and was the study ethical?
  • • Are the conclusions appropriate?”

Merits of the paper

Criticism of the paper

Or just really simple like

  • What 3 things did you learn from the paper?
  • Would you have done anything differently?
