Creswell(Text Book) provides direction on literature reviews for each of the three major approaches to research:qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods. In drafting your review of the literature, you shouldfollow the steps outlined here (presented in greater detail in John W. Creswell. Research Design:Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Methods Approaches.” iBooks. pp.149-35).1. Begin by identifying key words, which is useful in locating materials in an academic library ata college or university. These key words may emerge in identifying a topic or may result frompreliminary readings.2. With these key words in mind, search the catalog for holdings (i.e., journals and books). Mostmajor libraries have computerized databases; you focus initially on journals and books relatedto the topic. Also, begin to search the computerized databases that are typically reviewed bysocial science researchers, such as ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center),EBSCO, PsycINFO, Sociofile, the Social Science Citation Index, Google Scholar, ProQuest,and others (these are reviewed later in some detail).3. Initially, try to locate about 50 reports of research in articles or books related to research onyour topic. Set a priority on the search for journal articles and books because they are easy tolocate and obtain. Skim this initial group of articles or chapters, and duplicate those that arecentral to your topic. Throughout this process, simply try to obtain a sense as to whether thearticle or chapter will make a useful contribution to your understanding of the literature.4. As you identify useful literature, begin designing a literature map (to be discussed more fullylater). This is a visual picture (or figure) of groupings of the literature on the topic thatillustrates how your particular study will contribute to the literature, positioning your studywithin the larger body of research.5. As you put together the literature map, also begin to draft summaries of the most relevantarticles. These summaries are combined into the final literature review that you write for yourproposal or research study. Include precise references to the literature using an appropriatestyle guide, such as the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association(American Pscyhological Association [APA], 2010) so that you have a complete reference touse at the end of the proposal or study.6. After summarizing the literature, assemble the literature review, structuring it thematically ororganizing it by important concepts. End the literature review with a summary of the majorthemes and suggest how your particular study further adds to the literature and addresses agap in the themes. It is at this point as well that you could advance a critique of the pastliterature and point out deficiencies in it and issues in its methods.Task:a) State the topic of interest from your research project proposal.Topic: Impact of Information Technology in todays Business worldb) Practice using an online computer database to search for the literature on your topic. Conductseveral searches until you find an article that is as close as possible to your research topic. Locate 5-6articles that you would select and abstract for your literature review.b) Do a quick evaluation of 5-6 articles you wish to use for your literature review. (Note on yourselection: Relevance to your topic, up-to-date publication, credible source and mainly focus onjournal papers and books).c) Develop a literature map of the studies on your topic. Include in the map the proposed study anddraw lines from the proposed study to branches of studies in the map so that a reader can easily seehow yours will extend existing literature.d) Read each article and summarize what it says in your area of study.e) Write a literature review of 500 words on your topic of interest.f) Share with your peer the key words, results of your initial database search and the summary of yourliterature.
