Literature Review: Last name_First name
The goals for completing this assignment are to:
demonstrate proficiency in critically analyzing research evidence
demonstrate the ability to synthesize the literature
distinguish quality evidence
discuss the characteristics of research articles
integrate multiple pieces of evidence into a literature review format
identify gaps in areas of scientific investigations
Literature reviews in published studies provide what is known, what is not known, and what the possible contribution is of a study. The review of the literature for a quantitative study is done to identify the research problem, understand previous research, and plan the study. During the interpretation of the findings, the researcher may review the literature again to determine if additional relevant studies have been published. Reviews of the literature in published studies can be critically appraised for current, quality sources; relevant content; and synthesis of relevant content (see the critical appraisal guidelines box in textbook Chapter 6). A checklist for reviewing the literature includes preparing, conducting the search, processing the information, and writing the review. A written review of literature should be grammatically correct with a logical flow and a reference list that is accurate and complete.
You will write a limited literature review to identify studies published on your assigned topic. Your assigned topic is “appropriate coping strategies for burnout prevention”. In this assignment, you will review scientific literature in relation to your assigned topic. You are required to review and synthesize three research articles. The three articles are to be (1) peer-reviewed, (2) primary research, and (3) quantitative studies only. They must be articles that were published within the last 5 years. Throughout the semester, you have been searching for evidence that pertains to this topic. This is evidence that you may use to complete this assignment to support your literature review.
Step 1: Reviewing the Literature
A literature review is used to direct the planning and execution of a study. The primary purpose of a literature review is to demonstrate why a study is necessary. As you compose your literature review, you must establish the necessity for a research study on the assigned topic. One of the key tasks is to establish where gaps in the current research lie. You must show what has been overlooked, understudied, or misjudged by previous studies in order to create space for new research within the assigned topic area of academic or scientific inquiry. When reading the papers, keep in mind that you do not need to understand every last detail in order to get the main messages and a clear overview of what was done and its implications and limitations.
Step 2: Writing your Literature Review
Your final literature review and analysis paper will not be akin to a traditional literature review, which is usually presented as an often-lengthy text document. You are to provide your literature review in the format outlined within the rubric. You are required to electronically submit the three articles that you used to conduct the review, along with your final draft of the assignment. The articles may be submitted in PDF format. If you have already submitted the articles for a previous assignment, you are still required to submit them again with this final assignment. Your paper should be explicitly organized into sections that are listed on the Literature Review and Analysis rubric with clear section headings.

Disregard any outdated APA formatting within the examples
NOTE: You must be very careful not to simply use the abstracts of your articles or text in the articles itself for your summary. This exercise is meant for you to summarize things IN YOUR OWN WORDS! I am looking for YOUR summary of each source. Academic misconduct is a serious offense, thus TURNITIN ( less than 20% matching with no verbatim passages and no quotations) will be enabled. Please view the Academic Honesty Policy in your student handbook and/or the syllabus. You are required to submit full copies of your sources (research articles). There should be no third-party subscriptions or additional logins required when attempting to access your articles. Should this be the case, the article(s) will not be counted toward your grade and points will be deducted.
Please see attachments below are 3 journal articles for review on strategies for burnout prevention and a sample literature review as a guide. Also see Literature review Rubic.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
