Question Description

An important skill in doctoral writing is the ability to reflect on reading material and provide an integrated report providing information from multiple authors. For Part I, develop a research paper that demonstrates synthesis of 15-20 scholarly articles on the topic selected in Week 4. You should start your paper by identifying a research problem that you have identified in your readings.

Your paper should reflect critical synthesis of:

  1. What researchers have concluded regarding the problem, related issues, and potential resolutions, and
  2. What is still not known about the problem and its potential resolution.

The latter reflect gaps in the literature, such as understudied populations, missing theoretical foundations, contributing factors that have not been explored well, or other unknowns that could help shed more light on the topic. Such gaps are important to identify because they are used as a starting point for new research.

Note that an outline of the material will make it easier to develop the essay. From the outline, a draft can be developed and reviewed. During the review, you can ensure all elements of the topic are covered. The essay should be comprehensive and concise. Be sure to have citations for all assertions.

Length: 5-7 pages

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect doctoral-level writing and APA standards.

REFERENCE MANAGER 1 Savior, Thanks for submitting your assignment. The purpose of this assignment is to begin to develop skills to select a research topic and to find ways to manage the research articles once you discover them. Becoming familiar with researching academic references in the library is a much needed skillset throughout your academic career. You did a good job reviewing and comparing various references management tools. Once you begin the research for your literature review and dissertation you will become overwhelmed with trying to manage all the references. Finding a reference management system now will eliminate the stress and work in the future, when you will need to concentrate on more critical tasks such as analyzing research articles. For improvement, you did not include the excel spreadsheet that is required for this assignment. Your grade reflects the provided feedback. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help you. Have a great day! Dr. Jessica Lowery Clark February 5, 2019 85% REFERENCE MANAGER 2 Reference Manager Savior C Wright MGT 7300 Scholarly Business Communications Week 4 Assignment REFERENCE MANAGER 3 Reference Manager A reference manager is a tool that helps researchers in conducting three general research steps which include searching for references, storing them, and writing them (Feather, 2018). It aids researchers in finding important literature and allows them to store bibliographic metadata and papers in a person storage section or a database for future references, and enables them to insert references and citations in a specific chosen style when writing their research work. Explain the Reference Management Process First and for most, a good reference manager should have the following key functionalities in order for it to be considered good for use: • Capability to import citations from bibliographic websites and databases (Feather, 2018). • Capability to gather metadata from files. • Enables the organization of citations. • Enables the annotation of citations (Feather, 2018). • Enables the sharing of the overall database. • Enables the interchange of data with other reference manager tools. • Capability to produce various citations formats. • Capability to function effectively with word document programs. REFERENCE MANAGER 4 A reference manager is usually a package that enables researchers to collect/organize, and use bibliographic citations or references. The package is composed of a database that normally stores citations and references. Once a reference or a citation is inserted in the database, it can be used to generate bibliographies which are usually found at the end section of text. A reference manager allows and enables the direct importation from bibliographic databases via direct and immediate access from the bookmark lets or the reference manager that imports content or data from a web browser (Filson, 2018). Other than this, references can also be imported from other files or reference managers in a BibTex format with the aid of import tools. The database can later on, be indexed, labeled, and searched. In most cases, the reference manager will provide tools that help in organizing the references in subfolders and folders. Some of the reference managers enable the inclusion of text papers into PDF format. References can then be shared through the internet and arranged into workgroups so that the members can utilize the same database of references. The reference manager provides tools for the exportation of references and citations into a word program by choosing relevant content from the database. The citation style to be used can be chosen from the database which houses styles that are meant to serve a large number of publishers. Some of the reference managers enable style saving and editing. Some of the reference managers allow and enable the collaborative editing, synchronization, and sharing of a reference database across a public workgroup through the internet or even a private workgroup (Filson, 2018). The public sharing of the references is made possible through the internet via tools such as Bibsonomy and CiteULike. This is a functionality that helps in sharing open access files via the internet and also to produce usage statistics. REFERENCE MANAGER 5 I can definitely use the reference management tool to find my sources later by using the tools that come with the reference manager to organize and store my references into subfolders and folders that I can easily access later on in the future. Excel Spreadsheet An excel spreadsheet is an electronic program that is normally used for the purpose of storing data, organizing data, and manipulating data. The main advantages and disadvantages of using the excel spreadsheet include the following: Advantages of an Excel Spreadsheet All in One Program It is an all in one program and for this reason, it does not require additional subsets (Hines, 2018). Secure The files in this program can be protected by a password to act as an additional security feature. Easier to Connect to OLAP Excel has the potential to directly be connected to an OLAP database and also it can easily be integrated or fused with Pivot Tables (Hines, 2018). Sent Via Emails The excel files can easily be transferred via emails and thus can be viewed directly by using your smartphone which acts as a source of convenience. Disadvantages of an Excel Spreadsheet Virus Attack REFERENCE MANAGER 6 The excel files can easily be affected by viruses through tiny programs known as macros. Loss of Data You can easily lose your crucial information through the act of breaking the excel files into small files (Johnson, 2018). Slow Execution If you use one excel file, the file will definitely be big and thus, for this reason, it will execute at a very slow pace. EndNote This is a reference management software program that is used by students and AUT staff. The main advantages and disadvantages of this program include the following: Advantages • It can format citations that are imported by using any style format. • Works well with Microsoft Word document to reference and cite a document using your EndNote library (Johnson, 2018). • It has the capability to import citations from other sources or database. Disadvantages • It is not easy to use this particular program. • It may require you to manually edit your records that are in your library in order for them to be referenced properly (Johnson, 2018). ReWorks This is a program that enables the user to store and also to manage their citation through the use of the internet. REFERENCE MANAGER 7 Advantages • It can format citations that are imported by using any style format. • It has the capability to import citations from other sources or database (Tbaishat, 2018). Disadvantages • It is not easy to use this particular program (Tbaishat, 2018) • It may require you to manually edit your records that are in your library in order for them to be referenced properly. The best tool for me to use is EndNote and the main reason for this is because it works well with Microsoft Word program when it comes to reference and cite my documents using citations from my EndNote Library.
