BIO 101 - Finding, Reading, Summarizing, Critiquing, and Citing Scientific Research Articles

Resources for Summarizing

A Summary is a shortened version of the main points of the article, in your own words. A summary is factual, not an opinion or interpretation.

Resources for Critiquing

A Critique (or Review) is a judgment about how good the article is according to some standard criteria. It can include interpretation and comparison but it's not a reflection or emotional reaction to the article.
