Rationale: This assessment involves an in-depth exploration of the relevant literature for your research project. The literature review task will serve as a foundation for Assessment 3. “Importantly, a literature review sets the context for your study and provides the framework for interpreting your findings and results” (SCU, 2020).
Task: Demonstrate engagement with, and critical review of, literature in the field relevant to your research area.
The literature review should;
• investigate previous research and find out what’s been done before
• consider theoretical frameworks
• identify ‘gaps’ in existing knowledge to find out how your study fits within current knowledge and understanding
• determine/clarify/justify your research question/problem
• select the most appropriate methodology (if applicable) for your research
(SCU, Writing a literature review quick guide, 2020)
The literature review will include:
• Restate aim and research question/s (include any updates from assessment 1)
• Introduction - a brief overview of the chosen research area
• Review of literature in the field relevant to your research (minimum 8 academic journal articles)
• Discussion of methodologies used in the field/s
• Theoretical framework / conceptual map
• Conclusion
• Reference list using SCU Harvard referencing
• All data including, copies of literature and/or links to reading, etc. must be save to your SCU OneDrive and an accessible link included in the submission text with literature review – grades will not be released without OneDrive access.
