Write a literature review, to be part of your research proposal, based on the following guidelines:
- Choose 7-10 articles that relate to your topic. These articles do not need to provide a direct response to your research question(s).
- Summarize the relevant information contained in each article (e.g., questions, methods, results).
- Organize your review based on themes from groups of articles, theories used in groups of articles, or another factor of your choice. (Do not simply list and summarize each article in sequence).
- Provide a critical evaluation of the research you have reviewed, comparing and contrasting between the articles you are summarizing.
- Describe the way that the literature you have reviewed relates to your research question.
- Provide suggestions for future research in the area you have chosen.
- Conclude with a paragraph that summarizes the findings of your review.
- Your literature review should include a title page, abstract, and reference section, and range in total length from 7-10 pages
- All references must be listed in APA style format, and properly cited as they appear in your narrative using correct APA style. Refer to the APA manual for examples of how to do this.
