Reasons that you think it is an Academic Article

It follows many of the procedures that have been identified in class and on documents of the structure and areas that are used for an academic paper, using google scholar mostly tends to produce academic papers.It also follows a primary research topic. It was also published in International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance.

How well it fits the ‘structure of an academic article’  that I described in my previous post

The paper has many of the structures identified including an abstract, methods, results, discussion and references. The paper is rather brief only being four pages, but does include good results and discussion from the research. The description is sort of merged in with the abstract and can therefore be a bit misunderstood. Overall i would say it fits the structure of an academic article reasonably well.

say whether you are interested in properly reading the article or not (and give some reasons!)

I am interested in reading this article because I chose a specific area of IT based technology that interests me a lot. It includes sport which I play and love, including keeping track of the latest sports news.

What kind of article it is

Journal Paper

Reasons that you think it is an Academic Article

The article includes many of the parts that make an academic article including an abstract, introduction, methods  & results as well as a discussion of the topic. Using google scholar usually brings out the academic articles for you as well

How well it fits the ‘structure of an academic article’  that I described in my previous post

Looking at the article I believe it fits the structure of an academic article well, it is a bit shorter than other articles however. They have used and cited many references which I think is a good way to tell that someone has done more research and found a lot more information regarding the topic of the article and study.

say whether you are interested in properly reading the article or not (and give some reasons!)

Again I have used an article which interests me a lot more than other topics, Sport and the technology in Information Technology. Considering this I would be a lot more likely to be interested in reading it compared to say an article that may involve just an IT article with no extra context.
