Guidelines for Evaluation of Summarized Literature Review


1. Select five articles that reflect a comprehensive literature review of the theory

propounded by the theorist you have been assigned and summarize each. The

articles should contain at least two primary and secondary sources, one of which

must be a research article.

2. A primary source is an article written by the theorist herself. A secondary source is

an article written about the theory or its use by another author. A research article is

one in which the theory was used as the foundation for a research study; this may

be a primary or secondary source depending upon whether the research was done

by the theorist or by someone using her theory.

1. Start each summary on a separate page. Summaries should be one page

in length for each article. Begin each summary with the correct APA citation of the article.

2. The summary should contain an introduction, a synopsis of the article, and a

conclusion that contains your own evaluation of the article and its relevance.

3. Integrate all articles into a comprehensive reference list at the end of the literature
