Literature Review Draft Instructions Title, How is Nonverbal communication affect on the job application. (need to correct) Please review the sample literature reviews that have been provided to you during this course, as well as the structure of an experimental report and the role of the literature review section within an experimental report. As you know, an experimental report consists of the following 9 elements: 1. Title Page 2. Abstract 3. Introduction/Opening Statement 4. Literature Review/Study Overview (a.k.a. Your Research Question) 5. Methods 6. Results 7. Discussion 8. References 9. Appendices The Literature Review section is described in detail by Purdue OWL here: œThe introduction in an experimental article should follow a general to specific pattern, where you first introduce the problem generally and then provide a short overview of your own study. The introduction includes three parts: opening statements, literature review, and study overview. Opening statements: Define the problem broadly in plain English and then lead into the literature review (this is the œgeneral part of the introduction). Your opening statements should already be setting the stage for the story you are going to tell. Literature review: Discusses literature (previous studies) relevant to your current study in a concise manner. Keep your story in mind as you organize your lit review and as you choose what literature to include. The following are tips when writing your literature review. ¢ You should discuss studies that are directly related to your problem at hand and that logically lead to your own hypotheses. ¢ You do not need to provide a complete historical overview nor provide literature that is peripheral to your own study. ¢ Studies should be presented based on themes or concepts relevant to your research, not in a chronological format. ¢ You should also consider what gap in the literature your own research fills. What hasn’t been examined? What does your work do that others have not? The literature review should lead directly into the last section of the introduction”your study overview. Your short overview should provide your hypotheses and briefly describe your method. The study overview functions as a transition to your methods section. You should always give good, descriptive names to your hypotheses that you use consistently throughout your study. When you number hypotheses, readers must go back to your introduction to find them, which makes your piece more difficult to read. Using descriptive names reminds readers what your hypotheses were and allows for better overall flow. Your Literature Review uses exiting research and scholarly resources to tell a story and build a case in support of your research, and tell the reader why it is important and valid. ASSIGNMENT: For your Literature Review Draft, which is due in Module 8 on March 16, you will be creating the Introduction/Opening Statement, Literature Review/Study Overview (a.k.a. Your Research Question) and References sections. Your Literature Review Draft should be 4-6 pages in length and use a minimum of 5 legitimate resources. For your citations, consult the American Psychology Association Manual (APA Manual)”a link to the APA rules is provided in resources. Use this evidence to build the background and argument for the need and validity of your research. Most published literature reviews attribute the vast majority of the content to other sources, with the original content being a summary of those works and a statement of how that validates the need, and builds a case for, the research that will be done for the author’s study and discussed from that point on.
