WHAT IS AN ARTICLE CRITIQUE? An article critique is a specific type of reading a response that asks you to read, analyze and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of an academic article.

Ultimately, the purpose of the critique is to determine if the article meets your (personal and field‐specific) standards of topic selection, evidence, logic and writing style.
