PURPOSE Using data abstracted from the literature in the Review Matrix you will begin writing a critical review of the literature. Sections you will write include the introduction, method of review of literature, and results (synthesis). You will use a variety of literature to introduce the health concern. You will select 8-10 of the most highly relevant and highest quality research articles on your topic to include in your results section to synthesize the literature. Your written analysis will reflect a critical review of the literature and an extrapolation of common themes. THINK: what are the major themes that run throughout the articles you have selected.
Writing the Scholarly Paper
In part 2, you will begin writing the Literature Review scholarly paper. See D2L for resources and tools to help you with writing your scholarly literature review. Meet with your advisor as needed and/or recommended. Meetings may be held in person, over the phone or via a virtual meeting such as Google Hangout.
You will format your paper using the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. (APA). APA resources have been added to D2L.

Writing the Introduction, Method and Results (Synthesis) Sections of the Scholarly Paper:
Introduction: Describe the purpose of the literature review. Non-research literature as well as the research literature will be useful for this section of the paper.
1. A summary of the review of the literature- Background, nature and scope of the concern.
2. Motivation for the review- Why is this concern important? What are the social justice implications? What is the relevance to nursing?

3. An overview of the healthcare concern- What is the health care concern and why is it a concern? How does the concern impact the population of focus? Why is it a social justice issue?
4. The purpose of the review- Why is this important now? Provide a statement of purpose for the critical review of the concern (thesis statement).
Method: Description of the procedures used to complete the literature review.
1. Briefly describe the search strategy you used to search and review the literature. Include:
a. Date of your final search (i.e. “The final date of the search strategy was month, day, year.”)
b. Time period covered by the review (i.e. “The review of the literature covered a five-year period from 2012 to 2017.”)
c. Sources used (i.e. “The search included the use of three bibliographic databases, MEDLINE, etc, etc.” Indicate if special attention was given to specific peer reviewed journals)
d. Types of articles/sources (empirical studies, qualitative, etc. i.e. “Only empirical studies were reviewed, clinical guidelines and letters to the editor were excluded.”)
e. Summary of inclusion and exclusion criteria at different stages of the review with a final statement of number of that met the inclusion/exclusions criteria (i.e. a total of 20 articles were examined, of which 10 met the inclusion/exclusion criteria.). Statement of criteria used to determine the quality of the research articles (you may have used more than one).
2. Describe the Review Matrix Method-because you are using the Matrix Method adapted from Garrard (2017), you will need to reference this using the reference below. (i.e. “Using the Matrix Method (Garrard, 2017) 10 articles were evaluated using a review matrix with 6 column topics: journal information, purpose, methodological design, number of subjects, etc.”)
Results: The major findings of the literature review in the context of the statement of purpose.
1. What are the major findings from your review of the research literature? What are the outcome and themes identified. What were similarities or differences in the research?
2. What information is missing or inadequate in the research you reviewed? What issue(s) is missing or has not been investigated thoroughly?
3. What is your critical analysis and synthesis? A critical analysis reflects evaluation of the evidence and making an informed judgment about the studies reviewed. Separate your discussion of the literature (issues, methods, etc) from the critical analysis. Critically analyze using a thematic approach. Synthesize the results of your analysis. To synthesize means to combine findings from analysis of the literature to draw conclusions from the findings.
