Article Critique


Reference: Barghchi, Maassoumeh, Dasimah Bt Omar, and Mohd Salleh Aman. “Sports Facilities Development and Urban Generation.” Journal of Social Sciences (15493652) 5.4 (2009): 460-465. Academic Search Complete. EBSCO. Web. 6 Apr. 2011.


The article Sports Facilities Development and Urban Generation is an article that closely examines some of the key concepts within the field. According to the authors of the article there are two main issues with building a new sport facility which are their funding and justification of the investment. In the next part of this critique I will evaluate and discuss main concepts of the article.

My first impression of the article was positive. The obvious thing is that the authors put a lot of work with gathering the information from other sources and other authors (just for this article they used over 20 references). The main areas of the article that were used – introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusion, acknowledgment and references are clearly stated and served its purpose. In my opinion the introduction is the best organized because it provides the information and all the definitions and explanations that are crucial in understanding what the topic of the article is. For example the authors used the definition of the sports facility in order to distinguish it from the open recreational areas.

In the materials and methods section of the article the main points and elaboration is used properly which gives much more strength to the whole article. For example the authors recognized that most of the literature on sports facilities comes from North America, but however they also recognize that the facility construction in America differs from the rest of the world. Some of the issues that I found in this paper were related to some information that was presented and also general use of references.

In the title and throughout the article authors used a word “Urban Generation”, but they failed to provide the definition which gives certain troubles to readers. In my opinion it is very important to provide this definition because as mentioned before, the phrase was used in many occasions. Also the article in some parts is very hard to understand because the authors used many references that represent different things. Last thing that this article needs to improve is the grammar and spelling errors. In my opinion this is unacceptable especially for scholar article that some students could use for their projects and essays. The example of this is “Sports facilities are provide physical facilities but this hardware without software which is program is not able to have affects”. In order to really gain respect of their readers, the authors need to pain attention to details and not make these simple small errors.

This article is something that can be used for a various types of discussions and projects. It has really strong and developed arguments that bring the whole topic together and help the reader understand and comprehend. On the other side the article needs some improvement. As mentioned in previous part, typing and grammar errors are unacceptable and with changing that the article becomes much better. Also some parts of the article need a better organization and with that I mean better use of references in order to connect facts with ideas. Overall I liked this article and I would recommend it to anyone that is doing a research about Sport Facilities Development or something similar.

Welcome to Dusko’s Blog. My name is Dusko Topolic and I am a tourism major at Bowling Green State University. I am coming from a small country named Serbia, that is located in south eastern part of Europe as you can see in this picture bellow.



This Blog that I created is mainly for class purpose – TLEP 4830, and it has all different projects that we were asked to do. However this blog has some other information. I also played soccer for four years for BGSU and here is the short video of one of our games.
