What Are These Articles About?
So many people online and so many opinions expressed everywhere can leave the wrong impression that anyone can simply say anything, under any form. And this is not a good idea. Academic and formal writing has to regain its place among the most important forms of expression. Even if you are not looking to submit a review in an academic environment and you are only writing it to make a point, nothing is more elegant and professional than the argument delivered in the form of a well-written review. But how do you do this and where do you start.
This is what we will explain to you in our articles. There will be information on critical thinking and why it is vital to distinguish between qualitative and less qualitative pieces of writing. Among our articles you will also find a useful list of types of articles, so you know how to approach each piece differently.
We also took a shot at the difference between articles written for shock value versus the ones written for information purposes, to make sure you are prepared if you come across a requirement to evaluate such an article. On the same line of thought, we decided to mention something about the difference between real and fake news, since it currently is such a hot topic. Sticking to the context of writing a review, we brought up the issue of the audience and how it connects to the purpose of the review.
As far as the actual review itself, we mentioned what to put in it, as well as what not to put in it. We included an article on the correct structure and one about points of focus for your evaluation. Another interesting article refers to reasons why you should separate yourself from your subject and avoid creative a subjective material.
Who Should Benefit from This Content
Who could benefit from knowing how to write an article review? The correct answer is: anyone. More than being an academic skill, knowing how to right a proper review is a skill any person can benefit from since we are constantly surrounded by information and not all of it is of the best quality. More and more often we find ourselves in a situation in which we have to decide for ourselves whether the information presented in an article is true or false.
Having the knowledge to draft a proper review equips us with the tools we need to send a response, correct the author if his information is not correct and to contribute to the clarification of an issue. This is something truly powerful as it changes the way in which we relate to the media. It becomes a two-way communication where the readers can react and are given a voice. What they do with that voice is our responsibility.
Although most chances are that people in the academic field will need to write such materials, there is no reason why anyone else cannot use the same guidelines and create a professional and well-structured argumentation. If anything, it would make online communication a lot more organized and to the point than it is right now. Of course, this is wishful thinking.
