Literature Review
Introduction including body, summary and references.

Using Bloomas Taxonomy to write the Literature Review is foundational for a sufficient and complete Chapter II. Bloomas Taxonomy Levels 1 -3 (knowledge through application) refers to the steps in comprehending the intent of the scholarly and practitioner articles and the knowledge content contained within. When reading any article:
i · Identify highlights and key information content

i · Understand the key contributors and their contribution
i · Be aware of the theory and its application
i · Comprehend the research results, conclusions and implications
i · Provide a detailed summary of the article as it relates to the proposed research
i · Report the results in a cohesive manner
i · Build a a?casea? from the research to support your proposed research.
When writing a literature review using levels 1-3, make sure to include:
i · The contribution that the study or article adds to support or validate your research objective
i · How the literature builds on your proposed research
i · A short description of the research methodology as it supports your research purpose
i · A summary of significant results and implications of the research
i · The connection to or support for the theoretical base
i · Practitioner applications as they apply to the purpose of the research
i · A a?tie ina? to ongoing research in related fields
i · A summary of the article or book to support your research objective
The first three elements of Bloomas Taxonomy assist in understanding the how the articles and research address the existing state of research. You will acquire the information and categorize it in a logical manner. This stage is characterized as reporting or summarizing the theory, research and results. It is insufficient for a dissertation or scholarly publication to report only the results without understanding why and how the existing research applies to your research.

The writing style is best described as that demonstrated in scholarly journal articles. The largest difference between a Chapter II literature review and a journal article is length and depth a it is your task to demonstrate to a committee of your peers a sufficient understanding of the literature (existing research) and skills to conduct doctoral research. Once complete, you will be considered academically competent in this field of specialization. Key points when writing the literature review:
i · Keep the information succinct
i · Avoid long sentences and paragraphs
i · Use citations wisely a do not include a citation for every sentence
i · Make no assertions without corroborative evidence from the peer reviewed literature
i · Readers expect that any researcher that you are building from should be the most frequently quoted and referenced
i · Use a?olda? reference articles (before 2000) sparingly unless developing a historical perspective or citing seminal author(s).
In addition, you should avoid certain writing elements such as:
i · Verbose language
i · Reporting only research results without sufficient analysis, synthesis and evaluation
i · Repetition of factual information (repeating information contained in Chapter I)
i · Pages with few or no citations (you are reviewing literature so use authors concepts, words and ideas)
i · Writing frequently in the first person a consider yourself an a?observera? as well as a?integratora?
i · A description of your proposed research questions, methodology or prospective analytical techniques
