REVIEW OF LITERATURE-IS JUST WHAT IT SAYS; REVIEWING THE RELEVANT LITERATURE ON YOUR TOPIC TITILE.
REVIEW OF LITERATURE -A synthesis of all articles reviewed grouped into categories divided into relevant categories with headings. Do not review each article separately. Group the similar ones by the headings you are using. Must include and justify the research question, a review of the study problem, subject areas based on the research, the different programs used by other researches including yours, compare instruments used by other researchers and yours, compare different theories used including yours, and compare how results were done by other researcher including yours.
Internal References or Citations within text document: SEE APA FORMAT 2020 DOCUMENT ATTACHED FOR FORMATTING THE PAPER, THE HEADINGS, INTERNAL REFERENCES, AND THE REFERENCES LIST .
PLEASE DO A SPELLING AND GRAMMAR CHECK BEFORE TURNING IN,
First paragraph: Need first paragraph introducing the topic. (no heading)
Second and subsequent paragraphs use headings: ; then compare other programs and what they did including review instruments, all programs, theories used, participants used, statistics used, etc.
Continue and divide into headings based on the articles. Look at your title for the different parts. Find other similar studies and what their results were. Justify your use of the way your research study is set up. Do a pile sort of similar journal articles and make sure you have a heading based on the content of the research title (review the purpose of the study for what to focus on) (this could be divided into sub-headings also if needed).
Must divide into relevant headings by content categories; may use subheadings if needed. Group the articles into categories (e.g. into topics and subtopics and chronologically within each sub-topic). Only report the finding in the literature without personal comments. Never say “I or refer to yourself”. You can say the researcher found: but no personal opinions. Do not refer to yourself at all since you are citing someone else’s work, only. No personal comments go here; save it for the discussion at the end of the paper.
EVERY PARAGRAPH NEEDS A REFERENCE. If not referenced, it is only your opinion and is not what is included in a review of literature. Leave your opinions for the discussion at the end of the paper, not in the review of literature. You only report the facts stated in the literature.
LAST PARAGRAPH: Add a Conclusion paragraph at end and use the heading Conclusion.
Use all 25 references within the literature review.
SAY males and females only or participants. Do not say students, teens, people, children, etc.
Don’t say I or the author or refer to yourself. This is not your opinion but the opinion of the professionals as published in the literature as journal articles.
You want to use as many sources as possible for the same information and reference with several authors. A literature review, must cite similar data collection, results, instruments, population, etc. So, consolidating references and backing up statements from more than one author is a good review of literature. Two or more separate sources should be used for each statement when possible. Ex: (Michaels, 2016; Roberts, Jones and Stratton, 2020).
Read a review of literature from a thesis similar to your own topic to see how one is constructed.
Use all 25 articles you listed for the References assignment you turned in and review those resources. You have to review all 25 references in the reference list turned in previously. Feel free to edit, change or add references to your list but you need at least 25. Organize and sort the articles into topic areas finding articles with similar titles and outcomes according to your title and use those as your headings. You formulate your own headings according to what is important to your research. Each paragraph must have a reference and each article must be included or find another article so you have 25 references. You are reporting what the articles say, only, with no personal opinions. Use in text citations and multiple references frequently and use APA format for the entire paper. You are citing other author’s work in a review of literature. You only give your opinion at the end of a study in the discussion. The review of literature includes facts taken from other authors, only, not you.
Utilize a minimum of 25 professional health journal articles on your topic that you choose. This is a review of literature. Read about what a review of literature is in your APA manual using at least 25 research articles (not websites unless a research journal).
1. State your interest in the topic area?
2. What question(s) do you have about the topic area? What questions do your papers address?
3. What measurements instruments where utilized in the reviewed studies?
4. From the literature, develop subject areas essential in addressing your problem(s). These may be divided into headings in the paper. Include the program and theory used.
Headings may include a review comparing similar research and defending your purpose, instrument, program, theory, participants, statistics, etc..
5. As you read your articles, create a list of citations from the articles that may be usable in each of the subject areas or headings listed.
6. Use a short introduction to the review of literature to include your research question(s) but don’t put the heading Introduction.
Formulating the Idea to help you get started. What is your research question(s)? What independent variable(s) (classification or grouping) might be utilized in addressing the question(s)? Why? What measurement(s) (dependent variables) must be taken in order to answer the question(s)? Briefly, explain how the measurements will answer the question? What factors may affect the measured outcomes? What is your opinion? Briefly state why? Find literature which supports your opinion. Does the literature give a possible explanation of the phenomena being studied?
A research literature review synthesizes and summarizes relevant literature (i.e., books, journal articles, conference papers, etc.) on a specific subject, theory or topic for further research. Literature reviews are often required components of research proposals, research papers, scholarly articles, theses and dissertations. Organization is a key factor in any literature review because it determines what you want to say about your subject and what direction your research is taking. A review of existing literature can often lead you to a new research idea or a way to further the study of existing theory.
The literature review component of an academic paper compiles key pieces of literature used for research. It doesn’t simply list the research materials. The review provides a summary, evaluation and comparison of the materials without adding your own ideas to the mix. A well-written literature review provides a reference for your research and allows readers to validate what your paper says. Find a literature review in a thesis or dissertation to see how it is organized by content and only information from the articles are given. No author opinions are included in this review.
A research article reports the results of original research, assesses its contribution to the body of knowledge in a given area, and is published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal. A given academic field will likely have dozens of peer-reviewed journals. For university professors, publishing their research plays a key role in determining whether they are granted tenure. Once, research articles had only a limited audience consisting mainly of other scholars and graduate students. Today, websites such as Google Scholar and the proliferation of electronic academic journals have broadened the potential audience for research articles.w of literature and other existing information.
