Paper Analysis

The 5-page Paper You Submit Must At Least Cover

1. What is the general theme of the paper you read? What does the title mean? What are they trying to do? Why are they trying to do it? (I.e., what problem are they trying to solve?)

2. Who are the authors? Where are they from? If you can tell, what positions do they hold? Can you find out something about their backgrounds?

3. What did the authors do? 4. What conclusions did the paper draw? 5. What insights did you get from the paper that you didn’t already know? 6. Did you see any flaws or short-sightedness in the paper’s methods or

conclusions? (It’s OK if you didn’t.) 7. If you were these researchers, what would you do next in this line of research?

These need to all be your own thoughts. Do not copy-and-paste the authors’ thoughts.

Spacing needs to be 1.5

There needs to be a cover page, and, no, that doesn’t count as one of the 5 pages…
