Two (2) separate six-eight page critical analyses of a FEATURE article from a current
- Assignment: Two (2) separate six-eight page critical analyses of a FEATURE article from a current (i.e., since June 2020) risk management, insurance and/or employee benefits academic or trade journal will be due during the semester.
- Some appropriate risk management-related sources include: Best’s Review, Business Insurance, CPCU eJournal, Employee Benefits Quarterly, Geneva Papers, Journal of Insurance Issues, Journal of Insurance Regulation, Journal of Risk & Insurance, Journal of the Society of Financial Service Professionals, National Underwriter, Risk Management, Risk Management & Insurance Review, and Rough Notes. There are many other appropriate academic sources, rather than general Internet junk. If you are in doubt about a particular source, please ask.
- Proper Format: Each review should be double-spaced, in a proper academic format [i.e., no more than 1″ margins T/B/L/R; a standard 10- or 12-point writing font (e.g.,Times Roman;Courier); full/left justification; no widows/orphans], with correct spelling and grammar. Proof-reading is strongly encouraged. Each review should be your individual effort and should include: 1) a summary of the facts of the issue (i.e., why the issue was/is important), 2) whether or not the author did a good job presenting the facts/issues and/or his position, and 3) your critical analysis/evaluation of the implications of the issue. Thus, your analysis should not regurgitate uncited text from either the article or another student or other source [any/all of which are considered plagiarism under University Academic Honesty rules!! – recall: RM Rule #1], but instead your analysis should reflect your own informed academic opinion and your own discussion. Consider your review as a presentation to your boss on the issue which you identified that must be dealt with by your firm, and the outcome of your analysis has a direct impact on your compensation (which in a real sense it does: your grade).
- Each review must fully cite the author(s), title, and source [journal title, volume, date, page numbers] of your subject article(s).
