Chapter 2: Review of the Literature (approximately 8-10 pages double spaced)

The purpose of a literature review is to identify what is known and what is not known about your topic. To do this, you will need to locate seminal works (i.e., scholarly books, research articles, documents, reviews, internet resources) on your topic. The literature review must be defined by a guiding concept (e.g., your research objective, the problem or issue you are discussing, or your argumentative thesis). The literature review connects theory with practice. It is not just a descriptive list of the material available or a set of summaries but an organized synthesis of what has been published on your topic by accredited scholars and researchers. Depending on the topic, the number of sources for a literature review can range between five and fifteen (more is better).
