Successful completion of a doctoral dissertation requires significant amounts of independent reading on the research topic. This allows the doctoral learner/researcher to become familiar with the scope of the topic and to identify gaps or tensions within the existing literature on the topic. These gaps and tensions become the source of the dissertation research. In this assignment, you will read and annotate potential sources for your dissertation topic. Those demonstrating the most merit to the best of your understanding of the topic at this time should be added to your RefWorks list for potential inclusion in the literature review section of your dissertation.
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
• It is recommended that you engage in this activity throughout the duration of this course.
• Instructors will be scoring your submission based on the number of unique sources identified in the list submitted.
• Download "Literature Review Resources Tool" and use it to complete the assignment.
• Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.

Module 8 ASSIGNMENT ESSENTIALS #4 “Literature Review Resources”
The purpose of this final assignment is to read and annotate resources connected to your dissertation field of interest. Resources deemed valuable to the dissertation will be added to your RefWorks list for potential inclusion in the literature review section of the dissertation.
1. Consider this assignment to be an informative annotation which is a descriptive summary of the source providing information on the thesis, key points, and conclusions.
2. Read at least 10 empirical articles in your general dissertation field. These are articles that have not yet been read or added to previous literature review assignments.
3. Submit this assignment using the APA template. This includes a title page and header. The annotation charts should begin on page 2. • Make sure the paper title is placed at the top of page 2 per APA guidelines. • This assignment does not require an introduction, conclusion, or reference page. • Paste the chart directly on the APA template. • It is not necessary to include previous charts with this assignment.
4. Each annotated resource should include the following information: • Reference for the resource in APA format (include the doi number). If a doi number is not available then a permalink is not required as part of the actual reference. • Permalink: Add the active permalink underneath the reference. The hyperlink is active for this line. • Annotation. The summary should be 150-200 words using complete sentences. • Indicate whether the resource was added to your RefWorks list by adding Yes or No on the right hand column.
5. Dos and don’ts for writing annotations: • Use third person literary present voice
• Do not use first or second person voice (e.g., I, me, my, mine, we, our, us, you, and your). • Do not cite or quote within the annotation • Do not use bold font • Use Times New Roman 12-point font • Single space is fine without a hanging indentation
