The purpose of this article is to present a framework for reader evaluation of research literature. The elements of a research article are outlined by citing examples from the January 1984 issue of Physical Therapy. We present concrete suggestions that clinicians can use to develop competence in evaluating research literature and include an annotated bibliography of research references. Better patient care and increased professional growth will results when clinicians learn to evaluate and make use of the research literature.
