Many peer-reviewed academic journal articles contain a literature review section. Research to find and read several of these.
The literature review is not a listing of abstracts or simple paraphrasing. If your introduction and literature review are combined, ensure that each specific point in establishing the importance of your topic is supported by citations of proper sources. The points you are emphasizing are a reflection of the research and findings that you have developed around your chosen topic. Your ultimate paper is your own unique perspective, and in the literature review you are assembling related research to support your own work.
- Using your annotated bibliography from Week 2, conduct a literature review of your selected sources.
- Your literature review should be 3–4 pages in length.
Remember to use APA style for all references and citations.
