Lit Review

One of the most useful activities in preparing a research proposal is getting into the literature to (1) see whats already been done thats similar to your project, or (2) find out that your project is wholly unique and that youre filling any gaps that exist. For the purposes of this course, youre simply dipping your toe in the literature review pond.
A literature review surveys books, scholarly articles, and any other sources relevant to a particular issue, area of research, or theory, and by so doing, provides a description, summary, and critical evaluation of these works in relation to the research problem being investigated (Fink, 2014).
Using the ten (10) sources that you collected for your Reference List, write the Literature Review section of your Research Proposal. There are two excellent examples for you to review to help you write this section retrieved from (). You are also encouraged to do your own research on the formatting, style, and tone of a literature review. I recommend reviewing theses or dissertations.
