Research Project – Literature Review

In the previous exercises you learned to search for research articles and summarize their findings in an abstract and an annotated bibliography. You should now have 5 or more academic (peer reviewed) journal articles on your research topic and/or the GSS (as it relates to your topic).

In this assignment you will take those 5 annotations and weave them together into a literature review. Please read this example written by a student in Sociology:

Look at the articles you read for class, your textbook, and the following examples for more help:
