The purpose of this critique is to ensure that you know how to read and critically assess research for use in your own research, understand social problems in society, support decision-making in public policy, or influence oneâ€™s own individual research.
For this final assignment, read and critically review one of the journal articles listed below:
- â€œExperiences of Intimate Partner and Neighborhood Violence and Their Association With Mental Health in Pregnant Womenâ€Â (Links to an external site.)

- BodyÂ (about five pages): Highlight the quality of the research article (both the strengths and weaknesses) as expressed through each section of the paper (i.e., introduction, methods, results, discussion, overview). Use questions posed in the â€œEvaluate the Textâ€ section of â€œUsing a Scientific Journal Article to Write a Critical ReviewÂ (Links to an external site.)â€ to develop this section. Follow the â€œEvaluate the Textâ€ prompts and include the following:
- Critique whether the researcher used the appropriate and ethical application of research methods in relation to their research goals.
