Helpful hints on term critique and term paper preparation

 

In general

--All documents should be double-spaced in a readable font (e.g., Times New Roman 12 pt or something similar)

 

 

For crtitiques/reviews

--Critiques/reviews should be emailed to mayberenbaum@gmail.com; files MUST be labeled with your last name (e.g., “Smith critique.doc”—NOT just “critique.doc”). 

 

--If a pdf is available of the article you’ve critiqued, send it along with your critique/review.  

 

--Make sure a full citation of the article you’ve read is included in the critique and make sure your name appears within the document itself

 

 

For term papers/project reports

--In terms of format, choose a journal that would be appropriate for the type of paper you’ve written (e.g., if your project was a behavioral study of ant foraging, you could conceivably send it to the Journal of Insect Behavior; if your project was an examination of the relationship between temperature and onset of migration of black cutworms, you could send it to Environmental Entomology). If you have any questions about a suitable journal, you can email maybe@illinois.edu.

 

--Make sure your name appears somewhere within the project report.
