Oak Park and River Forest High School Library: Reading a Scientific Academic Journal Article

Anatomy of an Academic Original Research Article (Empirical Study)

Be Comfortable With Not Understanding ALL the Contents!

  • Skip over sections that don't seem relevant.
  • Don't try to plow through it all from start to finish your first time through.
  • You may only use a graph, chart, or a single sentence.
  • Look up words you don't know!  Google is your friend!
  • Ask for help if you need it.
