In this assignment, you are to compare two research articles as to structure, layout, language, reference style, etc. but not as to content. These two research articles were published after a peer-review process, which means that other researchers checked the content and the presentation before the publication. The author of a research article must follow the strict guidelines of the specific journal as to layout and structure. Your text should be 250400 words. Please count the number of words and provide it in brackets just after the text. Both the content and the language in your text are assessed; see the grading criteria below.
Remember to divide your text into suitable paragraphs. Please use the font Times New Roman in size 12 and write your name at the top of your document as well as the date that you submit. Your text should have a suitable heading in title case. Your document will automatically be checked in Ouriginal (formerly known as Urkund). As always when you use sources, you should have in-text citations and a reference list. Text 1: Rayson & Garside 2000 Text 2: Thormhlen 2020 You will find all the information needed to write the reference to Thormhlen in the article itself. Rayson & Garside’s article was published in a kind of conference proceedings, which may be difficult to know how to refer to, so here the reference is provided: Rayson, P. & Garside, R. (2000).
