Literature Review: Outline Assignment Instructions

Overview

• The goal of this assignment is to get you moving as quickly as possible on your reading of research articles. It would be best if you read peer-reviewed research articles at a pretty furious pace (two a day) to write with sufficient knowledge.

• The literature review is a review of the literature. It is where you provide the information you have gathered on your selected themes and begin constructing the case for your specifically designed model.

As you read, consider:

• What is the existing literature out there on my selected themes/variables?

(i.e., 1. You select depression as one of your variables. AND 2. Search existing literature/studies on depression (begin by gaining a broad understanding of depression, then begin looking at what particular studies have been conducted on depression, independently and in relation to your other selected variables)

*
Study each research article you read:

1. Take note of the literature they have examined to design their study, but DO NOT CITE FACTS FROM THEIR LITERATURE REVIEW UNDER THEIR NAMES; go to the
ORIGINAL SOURCE

2. Look at the methodology behind their study, examine their specific procedures and what tests they conduct

3. Take note of how they report their results

4. When you are reading through their discussion, note the way they discuss (perhaps their rationale or what sources they refer to)

5. Look at their limitations and future research

• Throughout you are reading, ask yourself where there might be “
gaps” in the literature (things the existing literature has neglected to examine/research) – this will inform your study.
