For the Unit I assignment, you will use what you learned about research methodologies, primary and secondary sources, and reviewing literature to develop a literature review. This literature review will become part of the final course project due in Unit VII. Please click here to access and utilize a template for this assignment.

Review articles in the CSU Online Library databases and other credible resources to locate six peer-reviewed, scholarly articles that relate to the Sun Coast business problems identified in the Course Project Guidance document. The articles you use should help inform your knowledge about the issues you are trying to solve for Sun Coast. The articles should also be quantitative research articles from primary and secondary sources. Try including words like correlation, regression, t test, and ANOVA in your keyword search criteria.

The article discussion should include the qualifications of the authors, purpose of the studies, research methodologies and designs used, results from the studies, and explanations of how the articles relate to Sun Coast’s problem. Ensure that you also describe how you believe the research made a positive organizational impact.

The title and reference pages do not count toward the page requirement for this assignment. This assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, follow APA-style formatting and guidelines, and use references and citations as necessary.

Refer to the Course Project Guidance document for insight. For assistance in creating your literature review, reach out to the Writing Center.

Literature Review

1

Overview

What is a Literature Review?

What does a Literature Review do (purpose)?

A Literature Review is not.

Now what? What do we do with it?

2

What is a Literature Review?

It is an essay, a synthesis of information relevant to your work.

Provides context and background for your work.

Literature Review surveys, summarizes, and links information about your topic.

Assesses the information and distills it for the reader.

A literature review discusses published information in a particular subject area, and sometimes information in a particular subject area within a certain time period.

A literature review can be just a simple summary of the sources, but it usually has an organizational pattern and combines both summary and synthesis. A summary is a recap of the important information of the source, but a synthesis is a re-organization, or a reshuffling, of that information. It might give a new interpretation of old material or combine new with old interpretations. Or it might trace the intellectual progression of the field, including major debates. And depending on the situation, the literature review may evaluate the sources and advise the reader on the most pertinent or relevant.

3

What does a Literature Review do?

Clarifies understanding of the field.

Explains the rationale for your research.

Evaluates the results of previous research.

Defines key concepts and ideas.

Identifies research in related areas that is generalizable or transferrable to your topic.

Identifies relevant methodological issues.

The main focus of an academic research paper is to develop a new argument, and a research paper is likely to contain a literature review as one of its parts. In a research paper, you use the literature as a foundation and as support for a new insight that you contribute. The focus of a literature review, however, is to summarize and synthesize the arguments and ideas of others without adding new contributions.

Literature reviews provide you with a handy guide to a particular topic. If you have limited time to conduct research, literature reviews can give you an overview or act as a stepping stone. For professionals, they are useful reports that keep them up to date with what is current in the field. For scholars, the depth and breadth of the literature review emphasizes the credibility of the writer in his or her field. Literature reviews also provide a solid background for a research paper’s investigation. Comprehensive knowledge of the literature of the field is essential to most research papers.

4

A Literature Review is NOT

Is not an annotated bibliography.

Annotated bibliographies:

Cite various works

Summarize major points of those works.

Discuss the importance of each work to the reader.

Annotated bibliographies are useful tools

First steps to a good literature review.

Summaries with additional note from your analysis and processing—written in your words

Paraphrase important information, eliminate direct quotes if possible.

9

OK now what?

Define/refine the topic.

Research effectively.

Read critically.

Take great notes.

Draft the written product.

Edit and refine.

10

Draft Written Product

A list of who said what is the starting point, not the final product

Tell the story, make your case

Use your words paraphrase, paraphrase

Write to your audience

Make connections for your readers, use both thematic and mechanical transitions.

Cite accurately, error free APA formatting is a requirement.
