Assignment 1: Literature Review Matrix

This Assignment expands upon the work you have been conducting for this week’s Discussion. For this Assignment (which you will start this week, and submit by the end of Week 7), you will conduct a search for literature on your selected practice problem. A Literature Review Matrix template will be used to identify gaps in the literature.

To prepare:

·         Consider the practice problem you addressed in this week’s Discussion. (You may select a new issue if necessary, but it is not recommended.)

·         Review the guidelines in the Literature Review Matrix, included in the Learning Resources. Formulate a research question around your issue as indicated in Part I. Then complete Part II of the Matrix, identifying the resources you will use, search terms and criteria, and Boolean search strings.

·         Using the Walden Library, locate 10 articles related to your research question. At least one article must be a systematic review. All of the articles should be primary sources. NOTE: If appropriate, you may use the four articles you reviewed for this week’s Discussion.

By Day 7 of Week 7

·         Complete Part I and Part II of the Literature Review Matrix template.

·         Begin working on Part III.
