Literature review is a very important tool that helps you to organize the research that has been done on a subject or problem that you may be experiencing. While you may not do a formal written review for every problem you address, the formal written review is a good tool for future reference to remind you of what you have learned about solving a particular problem in your professional capacity.
Your literature review will be 5 – 8 pages in length. This means that it should be no less than 5 pages and no more than 8 pages. You should use a Cover page and References page which are not counted in your page length requirement. Endnotes, footnotes, and headers do not count for page length and may cause you to fall short if not accounted for.
Your written assignment should be typed and double spaced with 12-point font and one-inch margins top, bottom, and side using the Chicago16 (Author Date) Manual of Style. All sources must be properly, thoroughly, and consistently cited. Careful attention to grammar, spelling, and the mechanics of presentation is expected. Wikipedia is not a reliable source of information. Any citation of Wikipedia, Dictionary.com, E-Encyclopedia, Spark Notes or anything similar in a term paper, discussion forum, or other assignment in this course will result in an automatic score of 0 (zero) on the assignment.
