what is the purpose of a literature review for a research study?
Focus your discussion on the following:
Although what you complete for the Research Prospectus is a literature review plan and not a literature review itself, what is the purpose of a literature review for a research study? Why is it important, prior to beginning your literature search, that you have a well-reasoned sense of what types of sources you are seeking (e.g., topical areas, key concepts, theoretical literature, empirical studies)? How do you know if a source is scholarly? How do you know if a source is peer-reviewed? Based on your discipline and concentration, what academic databases available to you in the CTU Library are likely to lead you to relevant peer-reviewed literature?
