LO3: Perform a targeted literature search to critically evaluate peer-reviewed works in order to extract information relevant to a chosen topic.
Your report should show:
An introductory paragraph which tells the reader what your literature review topic is focussed on. Ability to gather information from several papers (at least 10) and rewrite the information in a coherent whole in your own words. Copying will be penalized. A concluding paragraph. Headings/contents are not needed. Ability to cite and reference works correctly using the Harvard system (see Course Handbook section 4.4). Use of peer-reviewed works only, not works which have not gone through a peerreview process. In other words you need to be using papers and articles from journals. Relevance of your idea for an intended proposal, showing where there are gaps in accepted knowledge, and where initial research needs further investigations. Ability to write in scientific terms, as this is not a reflective piece, so do not use the first person. Do NOT write a project proposal this is a separate assignment.
Extra help.
Refer back to the literature review notes and how to use search engines from your year one studies. Read the papers you have found to see how those authors have created their literature review (sometimes called an Introduction). For each paper you find, make notes in a small (A5 is ideal) notebook, one paper per page. Then go through your notes looking for topics/phrases/concepts and group the papers together which show these, and rephrase their findings in your own words. Choose the next concept and repeat the process.
