Brief Literature Review

To conduct a literature review, researchers locate relevant articles and review them. Researchers also write abstracts of the article, which is a brief review of the literature. It is typically in a short paragraph, summarizing the major elements of the article. This brief literature review helps researchers write the final literature review.

In this assignment, you will write a brief review of literature (minimum 3–4 pages) based on your work done in Weeks 2 and 3.

The brief literature review should include the following elements:

  • The problem being addressed
  • The central purpose or focus of research
  • Information about the research approach
  • Review of key results related to your research topic
  • Whether the twelve articles are clearly reports of a research study, as opposed to essays, opinions, papers, typologies, or synthesis of past researches

Include the reference list in your brief literature review and submit it to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
