1. First, formulate a research question (RQ) of your choosing (on a topic of interest to you). In particular, see Chapter 2 in the text for guidance and the video on Developing the question. You should run your RQ by me for feedback before proceeding to the next step. 2. Then, perform a scholarly literature review to find journal articles that address your research question. Be sure to watch the video, ‘Literature reviews: An overview for graduate students,’ and read the Library guide on literature reviews, found in the Library and writing resources section. 3. Next, formulate hypotheses and identify variables that are important for your research question (based on this literature review). 4. Write up your review of the literature by summarizing the information you found in your search under steps 2 and 3 (see next page).
