Purpose: To efficiently and effectively summarize the information presented in scholarly articles.
Task: Present concise but thorough summaries of the information presented in the three (3) scholarly articles related to a selected topic/issue.
Note: You aren’t just summarizing articles, but you aren’t making a formal argument, either. In other words, this is good practice in removing confirmation bias.
The basic components of a traditional literature review include:
complete APA (Links to an external site.) citation
a descriiption of the publication
a summary of the publication’s main points and purpose
a discussion of research methodology and gaps in research
a discussion of data source, data collection, and data analysis
an evaluation of the findings and future research questions
First, choose a topic that interests you from discussions or readings in the first weeks of class. For example, misinformation, credibility in online news sources, or the affect of social media on our brains.
Find 2 scholarly articles that address your topic, published within the last 2-3 years. Use the Auraria Library Databases (Links to an external site.) to find a scholarly article, and refer to Week 3 module for more Library resources.
Summarize the arguments and information being made in each of the three sources. Consider the author’s credibility, purpose, audience, credibility of research conducted, rationality and claims made, and the actual evidence presented.
Read the scholarly article carefully.
