The articles selected as the ‘gateway’ to the literature on the various topics are nominated in the Lecture/Tutorial Schedule. Choose one of these articles from week 1 to 6 as your core article.

Identifying keywords in the article will also assist your further research.
Using Proquest, do a literature search identifying at least one article relevant to each of the four key questions that you have identified. Then summarize each of the articles you have linked to the four key questions and demonstrate its link to the question you have identified in the core article.
