Sample Article Review Paper on Article Evaluation and Analysis


This research is based on an article titled, “Rural Women Entrepreneurs in Malaysia: What Drives Their Success?” by Fatimah Hassan, Aznarahayu Ramli and Nasina Mat Desa. It is a descriptive form of essay whose ideas have been structured in a manner that addresses the main topical issue. The research content is well-developed and well-researched and is aimed at ascertaining the potential markers for enhancing success in businesses operated by women in the rural areas. It delves at their entrepreneurial spirit and shows how they have been able to overcome different issues through the employment of different strategies (Hassan, Ramli & Mat Desa, 2014).

The structuring and development of the article adopts an insightful and enthusiastic style that grabs the reader’s attention and fosters interest and drive for further reading to complete the article. Additionally, for the article to enhance its credibility, it incorporates articulate researches from credible sources (Shrivastava, 2004). The research methodology employed is also significant as it meets the needs of the research thesis and hypothesis, which further allows the reader to judge the credibility and usefulness of the main article in meeting the necessary requirements. Using specific business strategies, the research attempts to show how the rural women entrepreneurial abilities are improved and utilized. Additionally, through the use of comprehensive methodology and relevant research it estimates the merit of the use of either one or all of the business strategies identified within the article. The quantification of the viability and credibility of the research is performed using hard evidence collected through the employment of quantitative research. In the event that the hard evidence lacks the provision of a conclusive and substantive outcome, the research seeks the support from other credible articles or articles. This provides all the authenticity merits that a good sociological study would need to substantiate itself.

The research concludes that among all the strategic takes on businesses, the rural women would require confidence, determination and vision to succeed. This conclusion is derived from the interplay study of the literature and the systematic investigation of the evidence that the researchers gathered (Hassan, Ramli & Mat Desa, 2014). Furthermore the research presents an internal criticism which estimates the limitation of the research and possibilities that should also be explored to give research more comprehension and reach resulting in increased authenticity. This kind of research is qualitative and, at the same time, quantitative as it does not only provide data and its analysis, but it also connects it into the thematic structure in which the study is undertaken.

Article Assessment

This article provides an interesting view of entrepreneurship among women in the rural areas. The article uses explanations, researches, and motivations to support their main thesis. This form of articulate writing is intuitive and provides an avenue for the reader to become not only engaged in the article, but also to analytically view the article’s content (Gibson and Wolfgang, 2004). This provides an interesting view of the article since it is directed at a diverse and dynamic audience which not only constitutes the professionals and academicians, but also other less literate readers. The careful balance of all this thematic that finally results in the outcome of the article shows creativity and innovation.

This particular paragraph follows a less evaluative theme and focuses on more explanatory methodology that is in respect to the nature of the article. News articles, particularly motivations writings, are less official and loose. Utilizing this theme gives them more space to connect with the reader and engage them to get the message through. The paragraph follows the same pattern and chose the composition of words to provide a less official account of the news article. The tone here is softer and more connecting and the style is progressive unfolding of the article in a loose way without any judgment. Furthermore the paragraph identifies the central intent of the article as motivational and presented material that relates to this central theme.

Additionally, using articles such as newspapers and magazines allows the reader to connect with their literal sense, as well as their everyday life. This means that the two sources provide an avenue for the article to become viewed as not only addressing academic standards, but also sociological standards (Kennedy and Walton, 2000). Such a methodology is crucial in the conductance, tabulation, and data analysis for sociological research since it affects the daily livelihoods of everyday people. This is because sociological research is not a factual or scientific research, but rather an intrepid analysis of issues while supporting them with quantitative research.

The paragraph that needs to be analyzed is an evaluative analysis of data and this theme is maintained in the evaluation of the article (Hassan, Ramli & Mat Desa, 2014). The paragraph, then, proceeds to evaluate each aspect of the article and provides a corresponding judgment on that part. The reflection of the viability of the article is conducted in a manner that enhances a better understanding of the article. The thematic analysis supplies a tone and style provided by the paragraphs that incorporates a passive and judgmental attitude. It can also be said that the nature of the paragraph forces it to distance itself from the material which is usual for evaluation-based structures. Furthermore the paragraph includes two specific vocabularies which provide special words that are along the same line as the content and the style of the paragraph, research article and evaluation respectively. This paragraph follows the structure that the study follows and this defines the parts of the paragraph accordingly.

The evaluative nature of the paragraph is normal for intricate analysis of different researches. This process allows the reader to understand not only the content of the article, but also the literal content, thematic styles, and articulate substance been presented by the article. Such a form of evaluation is extensive and has to ensure that it does not deviate from the core structure or content of the article (Kennedy and Walton, 2000). Additionally, it is crucial to deviate from use of summaries and quotes from the article, and instead reflection and analysis should be utilized. However, use of summaries and quotes should only be employed on a necessity basis to explain a certain view or topical issue that would support the evaluation.

The article’s provision of ideological senses is maintained through the use of various examples that have been derived from different articles. The news article “You have a great business idea. Now what?” by Gary Nunn explores the idea of “light bulb” phenomenon that is connected with having a great idea and how should people react on those ideas. This is demonstrated with few examples which documents the way some people got a revolutionary or innovative idea and how they moved ahead to cash-in on that idea (Nunn, 2014).

This article’s intention is to provide motivation to people who are sitting on any idea that is innovative and how to transform it into a reality. All the examples that the author presents correspond to the nature of the article which is motivational. The author guides the reader to encourage them to take action on their idea. The article ends with a message from all the four individuals, those the article presented as inspiring examples, which also motivate individuals with great idea to find space where they can realize their ideas (Nunn, 2014). This form of literal structure allows the reader to connect to the content of the article, which boosts not only their understanding of the article, but also their interest in the article.


The comments provided for revision are useful in changing the content of the essay to suit a more professional audience, while maintaining its literal content and style. This means that the shift from use of summaries to the use of reflection provides an avenue to better understand the article and present its views in a credible and useful manner that can capture the target audience. The lecture material is also important since it provides an avenue to critically analyze the data and hence get a better outcome. The improvement in the grammatical and thematic styles is also crucial for the development of an essay that meets literal and professional requirements. Based on the comments that had been provided as feedback for the initial article, it has become paramount to change the content, tone, style, and theme of the essay.
