Project #86041 - Scholarly Review

I have two assignments.

First Assignment

Activity Description

Depending on whether you are seeking a DBA or a PhD, it is of paramount importance that you identify an overall organizing structure in the literature using either a conceptual framework (DBA students) or theoretical framework (PhD students). As previously mentioned, it is important to be able to relate the issues discussed within the review to theory or other frameworks that already exist in the field. This will allow you to show how your study will contribute to practice and/or theory. For this assignment, you will identify how your literature review fits within a conceptual framework(s) or theoretical framework(s) within your specialization.

As you have been collecting and reading your scholarly sources thus far, you should have been noting the conceptual or theoretical frameworks used by the authors. This was part of digesting the information within a scholarly source that you worked on in Weeks 2 and 3. In addition, you have been working to form themes in developing your outline in Week 4 and noting what frameworks were used within each theme/(sub)topic. In Weeks 5 and 6, you summarized, critically analyzed, and synthesized the literature you collected thus far. All the while, you also continued to collect additional scholarly sources, write, receive feedback on your writing, incorporate that feedback, and continue on. In other words, you have been partaking in the iterative process of writing a literature review. This assignment is geared toward further honing your literature review by helping you determine the conceptual or theoretical framework that you will use to couch your paper.

  • Look back at the scholarly resources you have read thus far. Describe the conceptual and/or theoretical frameworks used by the authors.
  • Compare and contrast how your topic relates to each of those frameworks used.
  • Based on your analysis, which framework best applies to your topic? Note that you may find that none of the frameworks seem to really fit your topic. This is a normal part of the writing process. If you find this is the case, please explain how the frameworks in your sources do not fit your topic. This should help illuminate where you should search in the literature to find a framework that applies to your study, which you can then discuss here.
  • Justify why this conceptual/theoretical framework applies to your topic area and literature search. Also ensure your chosen framework reflects your degree type.
  • Discuss how the framework interweaves into your literature review.

Length: 5 to 7 pages

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Second Assignment

Activity Description

The first draft of the brief literature review is due. This literature review should be from a comprehensive literature search and cover major themes you have identified in the literature. You should ensure that you are identifying and giving consideration to the theoretical or conceptual frameworks present in the literature you are reviewing (see Bloomberg & Volpe, 2008; Ridley, 2012). In this paper, you also need to focus on synthesizing and aggregating the literature, as well as providing a critical analysis of the literature from at least 15 scholarly sources (see readings from this week and Ridley, Chapter 8—regarding analysis and synthesis). Integrate or combine your resources to determine what conclusions can be drawn from the articles as a group, whereby the focus is on content (conclusions, hypotheses, or premises), rather than the individual authors or articles. Topics in need of additional research may also be discovered while aggregating your resources. Finally, ensure your draft adheres with the publication requirements of the APA Publication Manual (6th ed.) and that your draft is free of typographical and grammatical errors. This is a kind reminder that you should continually proofread your work.

Length: 10-12 pages minimum (this page length requirement does not include the reference list)

Note: You will be required to submit a second draft of the brief literature review that you have expanded. Therefore, you will need to include additional peer-reviewed sources in Week 11 of this course as part of the Signature Assignment.

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
