Writing Like a Star
This paper contains nine criteria or guidelines for reviewing written work. I have published these criteria in Books 1 and 2 of the Dr. Mac! Dissertation Mentoring Handbook. Book 1 is the Strategies for Quantitative Research. Book 2 is the Strategies for Qualitative Research. These criteria are important because they must reflect in each section of a written piece. The nine criteria are (a) depth of scholarship, (b) originality, (c) theoretical and conceptual framework, (d) use of literature, (e) substantive value, (f) clarity and logic of presentation, (g) grammar, (h) APA style, (i) and readability.
