Guidelines for Writing Paper Critiques
CS630 Representing and Accessing Digital Information

Each critique should be no more than one page long. Less than a page is OK. The purpose of a critique is not to summarize the paper; rather you should discuss one or two points about the work that you found interesting. Examples of questions that you might address are:

Your critique should be typed and should list the title of the paper and its authors at the top, along with your name.

Avoid unsupported value judgments, like "I liked...'' or "I disagreed with...'' If you make judgments of this sort, explain why you liked or disagreed with the point you describe.

Be sure to distinguish comments about the writing of the paper from comments about the technical content of the work.
