Reviewing Literature. An integral part of preparing for a
research study is performing a literature review. This includes
defining key terms which support your topic, searching for
journal articles which support these terms, adjusting your
search terms as needed, and then organizing the data you have.
Based on this foundation of early research, you can specifically
focus on the most important aspects of the topic chosen and can
even find gaps where other researchers have not explored. This
can be especially important because a research study which
fills a gap is very important to developing society’s and
academic’s thoughts on the subject – truly groundbreaking! In
your initial post, address the following:
What topic are you most interested in studying? In one
sentence state the essence of this study, then write your
research title. Basically, choose a research topic that interests
you – is it a social problem that affects a particular group in
society? Break down the elements: Who do you want to
research? What is the issue? Is there a particular place or other
differentiator which is useful to describe your study?
Considering the research topic you selected, list five key terms
related to your topic and use these terms to do a database
search for journal articles on the topic in the Ashford
University Library. What were the outcomes of your database
search? Did you modify your search terms to achieve a
successful search? Which databases were most useful to you
Considering the research topic you selected and the database
searches you performed, list the five terms you think are
important in this study and define/operationalize them.
Discuss the advantages and limitations defining these terms.
To help you do this, list the terms and how they specifically
support and are important to your research topic
