Write What is Right

Now that you fully understand the background of your research problem, you are ready to begin reviewing relevant literature. This will give you the necessary depth of research needed to develop into a subject matter expert. But first, you must begin by locating scholarly resources which are relevant to your research topic.

In this discussion, you will develop a comprehensive literature search strategy. After reviewing Chapter 5 in How To Do A Systematic Literature Review In Nursing: A Step-By-Step Guide (Bettany-Saltikov, 2012), address the following:

  • Identify each step involved in the comprehensive literature search strategy
  • Outline each step as it applies to your capstone

Next, you will locate two existing scholarly articles from the Purdue University Global library and show evidence of (1) properly paraphrasing and citing the abstract, and (2) directly quoting two sentences from the abstract (with proper attribution). Be sure to include a reference list that corresponds with your general citation and direct quote citation. You do not need a title page.

If you are unsure of the differences between paraphrased content and a direct quote, please refer to the Academic Success Center and review proper formatting and citing techniques. This discussion is preparation for the development of the Unit 5 Annotated Bibliography Template which requires extensive research, writing, and formatting skills.
