This weekâ€™s assignment covers a very important process in the development of a scientific research paper: the peer-review process. This week you will critically review one of your peerâ€™s first drafts of their evidence-based research paper. The following criteria must be met:
- First off, the more detail you put into your review, the better. The idea of this entire process is to provide the original author with ample information to help them greatly improve their final draft of their evidence-based research paper. The more specific you can be with your comments/revisions, the better it will be for the original author to make the suggested changes/revisions.
- Use the â€œTrack Changesâ€ feature of Microsoft Word, and if feel that specific changes/edits need to be made, make them directly onto the document. The Track Changes function will completely register all changes made to the original document.
- Also, if you have any questions to the author, suggestions to them, or comments regarding the formatting/content/writing, use the comment boxes (under the Review tab of Microsoft Word). Again, the more specific you are, the better.
- Knowing the requirements of the first draft, if any of those requirements are missing (e.g. definitive hypothesis, missing required sections, improper APA formatting), make sure you comment on them to the author.
- Make sure you consider the clarity, conciseness, and organizational clarity throughout your review.
- Lastly, make sure you include a detailed summary review at the end of your paper that addresses the 7 required criteria listed in the assignment directions.
- Be sure to review the grading rubric prior to creating your paper to ensure that you know what is expected for each section and how each section is weighted in terms of points.
- You are not required to submit this assignment to TII, but if you do not I will submit it for you.
Your instructor will send you the first draft submitted by one of your peers through the classroom email system.
Copyedit the other studentâ€™s paper using copyediting marks or the Track Changes editing function in Microsoft Word.
Provide feedback related to the key problems in scientific writing and relevance as described in Lecture 4.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
