*Review Article

Review article is different from research article. It rather examines data presented by research articles. Review article must be strong in argumentation presented. An argumentation usually contains Assertion which is the claim of statement, reasoning is the logical explanation that supports the claim, warrant is the soul of the argument that covers the question “so what?”, and evidence is the last part that strengthens the reason.

The structure of your review article includes abstract, introduction, body, conclusion, and references.

*Abstract: typed with Cambria Italic font 12, sloping, no reference, nor abbreviation/acronym and footnote. It generally includes a summary of the review question, the primary study reviewed and conclusions of the study.

*Introduction: write the topic of the study, which serves as the identification sentence. It should indicate what the article contains. Clearly outline the order in which every sub-topic will be discussed to give the reader background information needed to understand the sections in the article.

*Body: including subtopics the study addresses.

*Conclusion: it should briefly state your rationale for your review and the purpose of the article.
