Your Literature Review

As a reminder, the purpose of a literature review is to provide an overview of what other researchers have found out about your chosen topic and to identify gaps in the literature (i.e., what is missing from our current understanding of the topic?).  

Previously, you identified at least five scholarly articles which you reviewed to determine the theoretical/empirical basis for your study; identified how your study would fill in the gaps you found in the literature; determined whether the literature supported your hypothesis and drafted a new hypothesis if needed; and lastly, identified the significance of your study.  

ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Your literature review should include the following elements. Refer to this sample literature review (Links to an external site.) for assistance.

  1. To draft your literature review, you will start with an introduction paragraph that starts by identifying your topic.
  2. If you used the Literature Review Notes handout in Week 3, M2.4 Evolve, then you should have identified similarities and differences in the articles that you have read. You will discuss these in the body of your literature review. Typically, discuss the older, more significant studies first and explain how they laid the foundation for the more recent studies that you have selected.
  3. Lastly, you should include a conclusion paragraph that succinctly summarizes the literature.
  4. Your review should be 3-5 pages in length and must include a reference page and appropriate use of in-text citations. 

This assignment is due Sunday of Week 4 by 11:59 PM EST.  You will be assessed using the M2.6 Literature Review Rubric.
