Project #47258 - EBSCO review

Guidelines for EBSCO Review Assignment

you must use one of the following journals for your review: 

• Journal of American Studies

• Journal of American History

• American Historical Review

• History Today

• Journal of American Ethnic History

• Journal of Policy History

 The articles that you select must be at least 8 pages in length. The report is to be 5-7 

pages in length. You are encouraged to use a title page. (title page does not count 

toward page count of your review) You are also encouraged to follow the MLA or 

Chicago formats to develop this report. Please double-space your review. please focus your review on topics pertaining to 

World War II, the New Deal, Vietnam, the Cold War, JFK and LBJ, the New Right, 

Watergate, etc.

This an example of the type of the format you should follow:

“The Chinese Exclusion Example: Race, Immigration and American Gatekeeping,” by 

Erika Lee, Journal of American Ethnic History, Spring 2002, Vol. 21, Issue 3, pp. 36-63.

In terms of the content of the report, I am looking for two main points of 

discussion. First, you should devote the first half of the report to a summary of the 

main points that the author is trying to convey to the reader. To help you to address 

this issue, consider some of these questions: What type of article is this? Is the author 

presenting an original feature, or is he/she conducting a book review? If this is a book 

review, what book (or books) is being reviewed? What is the authorʼs purpose for 

writing this article? What is the authorʼs academic or professional background?

As for the second point of discussion, this is where you provide your opinion or 

perceptions of the article. In other words, what did you think about it? What were the 

strengths or weaknesses of the article? How did the article relate to the class? You are 

definitely encouraged to write in first person singular (I feel that..., I think..) as you 

provide your opinions. As a general rule of thumb, your EBSCO review should be about 

60% summary and 40% commentary. Thus a 5-page review with about 3 to 3 ½ pages 

summary and 1 to 1 ½ pages commentary is an ideal proportion.
