In consultation with your instructors and the list of issues provided, select a topic area as the focus of your literature review. Once you have a subject area, begin the literature review process by familiarizing yourself with the available research on this topic. Don’t try to read everything, but do consider both articles that are recent and research that forms the foundations of this knowledge base.
Once you have narrowed your topic sufficiently, you’ll want to locate a range of materials published by experts or scholars in this particular area of study. Examining bibliographies to locate reoccurring names can lead you to the works of key researchers in the field. Scanning for titles of studies that are cited repeatedly can also lead you to influential texts in the area. At this point, you’ll want to gather more materials than you plan to include in your literature review to allow for the winnowing out of substandard or poorly related materials.
When you are reading the materials you’ve collected do so with an eye toward writing your literature review. All good literature reviews perform the following tasks:
Provide a tightly-organized investigation of a single thesis or research question by identifying key research on the topic area.
Synthesize the results of previous research into a summary of (1) what is understood to be historically accurate or accepted practice, (2) what practices or policies are still under question of investigation, (3) what practices or policies have not been well addressed by existing research and (4) what areas of the topic still require investigation.
Identify distinct areas of controversy among previous researchers/research results. Devise questions that need further research.
(These areas could provide good headings to organize your notes and later your writing.)Scope: All literature reviews will be expected to encompass at least one major controversy in the specific topic area and to explain this disagreement from at least two competing vantage points. Students will be expected to incorporate reviews of at least 7 closely related sources.
Length: Although there is no length requirement, a fair estimate of length, not including bibliography and appendix, would be approximately 6-8 pages for undergraduates.
Technical requirements: All papers must exceed general writing standards for the appropriate college level. Papers that are poorly written, edited or proofread may be penalized a full letter grade. If you are concerned about your writing proficiency, please make use of the Writing Center resources. Consider exchanging papers with another class member to facilitate editing and proofreading.
Papers should comply with APA (American Psychological Association) citation style throughout.
Bottom line I need a literature review thats about any of these classical, biological, psychological, social structure, social process, social learning, and conflict theories. I need at least 7 sources and an annotated biblography in APA format. Please Help!
