Public and Third Sector Economics

Public and Third Sector Economics

Coursework (CW) 1:

This will consist of a portfolio, which provides evidence of various tasks completed throughout the module. These include for example, the application of theory to real examples, and the relating to public and third sector organisations. [LO1]

Your portfolio will include work you complete throughout the semester.

The portfolio is based on 2 core pieces of work:

Submission of an Article Review (1000 words) 25%

The CW1 grade will be calculated as the average of the scores obtained in 2 above individual tasks. However, if you don’t complete both tasks, you will automatically get a failing grade to the whole work (CW1).

1. Article Reviews (25%)

You will need to submit an article review from the seminar articles. The articles are being uploaded on course resources. A template that includes the information that you should include is provided below (page 6). The table should not be part of your submission, the review should be submitted as a short essay. However, the template below provides the type of information that should be included in the review.

An article will be assigned for informal feedback, students are encouraged to submit an article review on the selected article for formative feedback.

Guidelines on Article Reviews

i) Language

-In some reviews there are some grammars or spelling mistakes. I would really like you to double check the language before submitting your article review as the information presented may not be very clear.

-It is important to understand that for an ‘academic-style’ piece of writing, you have to make everything that you write crystal- clear and your writing needs to be formal. In particular, students should use the correct terminology (i.e. you need to talk like an economist). Avoid describing the impact of x on y as huge, tremendous or anything like that, instead discuss the significance, percentage change etc.

-Avoid informal expressions too.

-Also, if you have any issue with the language, use only short and clear sentences.

ii) Structure

– A very important point is that you should do your article review in an essay format so
-Essays need to be clearly structured with an introduction (stating the problem of interest and presenting the context, ideally introducing a brief outline of what is to come: the main thesis, and the main finding of the article, in a couple of sentences.

-For an article review, there should at least be an introductory paragraph, a main body and some form of concluding comments with the evaluation of the article and its implications.

-The main part needs to discuss the methodology and data and link this to the findings. It cannot be just a list of topics. Remember the article review is not a summary of the paper, you don’t need to list everything, and you shouldn’t describe the sections of the paper or all the variables or hypotheses.

-You cannot refer to section 1, or table 5 etc. It’s not a summary of the paper, you should discuss the points in terms of significance and importance, and again you don’t need to list everything. Please see section below as well.

-Also please avoid writing the evaluation on the main part. This part is about the article that is being reviewed only.

iii) How to deal with an ’empirical paper’

-You should aim for a neither too vague/nor too specific strategy. Neither too vague means that it might not be enough to write in two sentences what the message of the article is, but not too specific means that the student does not have to discuss all specific features of the statistical methods, or every single variable on the dataset involved.

iv) Critical and Analytical skills; How to formulate ‘critiques’, put the paper in a ‘broader context.

-You cannot only describe the paper and there is a need to go further. However, it is best to avoid “artificial” criticism or vague statements. The very best reviews are those that have been able to place an article in its context and in the literature, by referring to other readings or to what have been discussed in the course.

-Please do have a reference section at the end of your article review with at least 1-2 references, other than the papers cited in the article you are reviewing. This does not count in your word limit.

Other comments
Your reviews need to be no more than 1000 words. Any content beyond the limit won’t be marked.

The submission deadline for the article review is 21st November 2022 by 12 Noon. You need to include the title of the article on the top with the name of the article, authors, journal, year. Again, this does not count to your word limit.

Formative Feedback

Clinics will be held on the teaching Week 8 in which you can receive formative feedback on article review. Based on the feedback, you can improve the quality of the review.
You should upload your article review via Turnitin no later than 18 November 2022

Article Review Template: What you should include?
[You should do your article review in an essay format so do not use the article review template]

Author Author’s name
Title Title of article / book chapter
Source Journal / book
Summary: thesis & main points Give the thesis statement of the reading – one or two sentences in the article (normally in the introduction or abstract) that summarise it. Often starts with something like ‘this paper will argue’ but can be more subtle.
Write down a summary of the main points /central arguments the made by the author. This includes but not limited to the background, rationale, objectives, methods, key results, and limitations.
Type of evidence Explain the rationale, describe the type of evidence used to support the thesis & arguments e.g. econometric (write down sample, time span)/qualitative evidence (case study, interviews, etc)/theoretical paper (no empirics), sources of information, methods, findings/results
Response:
-Evaluation
– Implications
– Personal reaction Evaluation: Are you convinced by the author’s argument? Explain why.
Things to think about:
Is the argument convincingly supported by the evidence?
– Is the evidence relevant to the argument and conclusions? Is the evidence strong enough to support the author’s arguments? Is there evidence that contradicts/weakens the author’s argument? Does the evidence agree with other sources? Are there exceptions to the argument that the author hasn’t acknowledged?
Does the author pay attention to alternative arguments / explanations?

Implications: How do the arguments made by the author fit into a wider context?
– How does it fit with other reading? What new course-related information did it contain?
– Who might find this reading useful? Could this reading lead anyone to change the way they approach this issue or the way they work? What are the implications for policy?

Personal reaction: Note your reaction to the reading. Which ideas did you find particularly interesting? Do you have questions that are not answered by the reading? Are there parts you found confusing and could have been addressed better?
