The article in its current state is too short to adequately describe what job sharing actually is. The advantages and disadvantages section needs to be expanded with more concrete research and examples. It also would be beneficial to have a section committed to going more in depth on the history of job-sharing and its effect, if any, on the economy. It also would be helpful if there was information about the methods that current companies use and their research on its effects on moral and etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dng21 (talkcontribs) 04:36, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Peer Review hbw14[edit]

Principle #1: Comprehensiveness.[edit]


Yes the lead paragraph explains but only briefly.

Job sharing is a form of part time work. It has history in many industries. It has many advantages and disadvantages such as some quality of life qualms with someone only working half of a job.

The article is brief at best and does not fully explain the topic to any extent.

There is a wealth of evidence available for a limited amount of information.


The topic of the article is clear.

There is scholarly support though it is not detailed.


There are five different sources used, and all are used once.

There are no competing points of view to provide.

Nuances and subtle distinctions are void.

There is an appropriate amount of sourcing for the limited amount of information.

The article has too few references for the information to truly be without a bias.

Peer Review Trevorcallarman[edit]


The lead paragraph explains the topic. However, there may be room for elaboration. As far as I can tell. Job sharing is between two people that make an arrangement to do one job. History shows its a pretty recent thing. It can benefit those people who want to work less hours. I think more needs to be added on the advantages and disadvantages. The evidence appears to be sufficient.

The article does focus on a clear topic, and does have scholarly references.

It seems to represent various perspectives. The tone is appropriately neutral.


The claims are supported with references. Although the article needs more. The language is precise.


The article has a neutral point of view. It shows a few advantages and disadvantages, but needs more. The article does not state opinions as facts. Coverage is well balanced.


The entry is written with clear language and the message is coherent. It is clear and has few grammar errors. B. Organization and style - Has a clear focused and is well organized. However, more topics may need to be added for future edits. C. Formatting - It appears to be formatted well. There could be more entries. An image may be cool.

Open-ended Questions[edit]

1. I like that the group has given a clear idea about what job sharing is. The definition flows well with the history and gives me a good idea about why job sharing was created.

2. I would add more information to this article. Make sure there is as much good literature in there as possible. I would also try and add more sections for people to edit in the future.

Yes Does it include detailed scholarly support (where appropriate)? 

c. Representativeness 
 The article should have more sources

Sourcing The sources seem accurate and reliable. The articles does not have a lot of sources. Could improve by adding more. The language in the article is precise.
