Literature Review Assignment Part II:

Researching the Literature

Each student will research the literature, find, select and read 10 articles related to his/her topic (only human studies). Then, he/she will complete and submit a table that will summarize key elements and main findings from these selected articles. Use the following format when completing the table and make sure to include a reference list below the table (APA 7th edition format). The information should be succinct; including unrelated information will lead to point-deduction. You are not allowed to copy- and paste from the main articles. You cannot include review studies/meta-analyses/systematic reviews.
