- Summarize the main findings and purpose of the research article. This can include the type of research design (i.e., is it a correlational or experimental study?)
- Does the article discuss etiology of the mental illness, descriptive psychopathology or treatment? Is there a control group?
- Can you provide another explanation to the findings of the article?
