School-based counselors and counselors-in-training need to be active consumers of high-quality research in order to incorporate research-supported strategies into their school counseling practice.. One way to become familiar with current research is through peer-reviewed journal articles. In order for school-based counselors to effectively translate what they have read in an article into counseling practice, they need to be able to identify if what they are reading is of high quality. In this article we provide counselors and counselors-in-training with a brief resource to constructively evaluate the quality of literature reviews as well as the research questions of an empirical study. We provide a case example and discuss practical application.
