Preparing for the Literature Review: Developing an Annotated Bibliography (Continued)
In Week 4, you developed an annotated bibliography citing literature that supports your dissertation topic. This week, you will add to that annotated bibliography by including research articles that use a similar theoretical foundation and data collection methods to what you are proposing for your study. To prepare for this Assignment, find a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles that use a similar theoretical foundation to what you plan to use, and two peer-reviewed articles that use the same type of data collection and/or data analysis methods that you plan to use in your dissertation.
The Assignment (2 pages):
Â· Submit annotated citations for the four new articles you have identified for your bibliography.
Â· Include a brief summary of how each of these articles informs what you hope to accomplish.
Note: For ideas on how others have handled the Literature Review and Annotated Bibliography, you might find it useful to browse through the dissertations in the Walden Library and see how others have approached these sections.
