Nvironmental econimics. Article review 1
There are four Journal Article Summaries required this semester. Each one consists of a 2-3 page review of a peer-reviewed journal article on some aspect of environmental economics. You will need to include proper citations in APA format.
Usually about 2-3 pages in length, using APA format
Article must be from a peer-reviewed scholarly journal
Article may not be more than five years old
Article must focus on economics related to or applied to an environmental issue or problem
State at the beginning of the review the name, volume and date of the periodical
State the article name, page numbers and author(s) name, with exact sourcing (where it was found)
Give a brief summary of what the article said (approximately 350-400 words) including relevant economic data and/or research methodology presented
Conclude with your comments including:
why you chose the article
your impression of the article
what, in your opinion, is the significance of what the article said
how the article relates to the course
Include a proper APA citation at the end of the review
Please remember that a journal article is NOT found in popular publications like Business Week, The Economist, or the Wall Street Journal. It is a serious scholarly work that has been reviewed by knowledgeable peers before publication. Some economics journals are very technical (meaning mathematical) but others (like the Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association and some of the transportation journals) are easier to read. If you are unsure whether your article is appropriate for this assignment, please contact me. Its a good idea to use this assignment to find an article that will be useful for your research paper but do not limit yourself if you want to explore a wider field.
