Does the writer demonstrate a clear understanding of the topic and the practicalities of the selected application area Has the author considered broader application issues (opportunities or constraints) relevant to the use of the application in other contexts (e.g. the author’s home state or city if the selected application is from overseas or vice versa) Has the case study been clearly written with attention given to structure, layout and English expression, including proofreading to eliminate obvious misspelling, grammatical or typographical errors Are references correctly cited in the text and fully detailed in the reference list.
