Select only the most important points in each source to highlight in the review. The type of information you choose to mention should relate directly to the review 8767 s focus, whether it is thematic, methodological, or chronological.

You may have the opportunity to design and conduct your own research study or write about the design for one in the form of a research proposal. A good approach is to model your paper on articles you’ve read for class. Here is a general overview of the information that should be included in each section of a research study or proposal:
The Family Herald. 6996. March 9, 6898:755. Qtd. in Farrar, Peter. Tight Lacing: A Bibliography of Articles and Letters Concerning Stays and Corsets for Men and Women. Liverpool: Karn Publications Garston. 6.
And don 8767 t forget to tap into your professor 8767 s (or other professors 8767 ) knowledge in the field. Ask your professor questions such as: 8775 If you had to read only one book from the 95 8767 s on topic X, what would it be? 8776 Questions such as this help you to find and determine quickly the most seminal pieces in the field.
First Sentence: Along with including the article's title and author's name, the first sentence should be the main point of the article. It should answer the question: What is this essay about? (thesis). Example:
When you account for all of the costs associated with burning coal and other fossil fuels, like air pollution and health effects, in reality they are significantly more expensive than most renewable energy sources.
Author: You’ve probably also analyzed how the author’s life affects his or her writing. You can do the same for this sort of analysis. For example, in my sample reading the response about Michael Crichton's "Let's Stop Scaring Ourselves" article, students noted that the fact that Crichton is the author of doomsday thrillers like Andromeda Strain and Jurassic Park makes his argument that we shouldn't pay much attention to current doomsday scenarios like global warming rather ironic. If you don't know anything about the author, you can always do a quick Google Search to find out. Sample format:
History: The chronological progression of the field, the literature, or an idea that is necessary to understand the literature review, if the body of the literature review is not already a chronology.

Peer-reviewed research, physics, and math all tell us that a grand solar minimum would have no more than a ° C cooling effect, barely enough to put a dent in human-caused global warming.
While the literature review presents others 8767 ideas, your voice (the writer 8767 s) should remain front and center. Notice that Falk and Mills weave references to other sources into their own text, but they still maintain their own voice by starting and ending the paragraph with their own ideas and their own words. The sources support what Falk and Mills are saying.
