In light of the content of this course, what additional insights do you have on your proposed dissertation topic? How are you currently formulating your research approach using what you know about qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methodologies? Based on your current understanding of research methodologies, what hurdles or barriers are you going to need to address to move your research forward? (Research is not required to support your conclusions.) How will the information on finding a content expert (see “Finding a Content Expert” in topic materials) influence your research plans?

Literature Review Resources

Due Date: Sep 25, 2017

Details:

Successful completion of a doctoral dissertation requires significant amounts of independent reading on the research topic. This allows the doctoral learner/researcher to become familiar with the scope of the topic and to identify gaps or tensions within the existing literature on the topic. These gaps and tensions become the source of the dissertation research. In this assignment, you will read and annotate potential sources in your dissertation field of interest. Those demonstrating the most merit to the best of your understanding of the topic at this time should be added to your RefWorks list for potential inclusion in the literature review section of your dissertation.

 

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Locate the assignment submission for “Literature Review Resources” from PSY-803. You will be adding to this document to begin building a running literature review.
  • It is strongly recommended that you engage in this activity throughout the duration of your program.
  • Instructors will be scoring your submission based on the number of unique sources identified in the list submitted.
  • Download the resource Literature Review Resources Tool (if needed) and use it to complete the assignment.

  1. The APA formatted citation.
  2. A brief annotation of the key points of the source.

Previously, you drafted the ten strategic points for a potential dissertation research study based on an identified gap in the literature. In this assignment, you will practice the doctoral dispositions of valuing, accepting, and integrating feedback and reflecting on those inputs as you revise your draft of the ten strategic points created in the preceding assignment.
