Good Evening Dr. Hale & Classmates: A good literature review shows how the doctoral author moves between research activity, reading interpretation of theoretical perspectives, the importance of conceptual and interpretive findings and the actual processes of writing (Wisker, 2018). Literature reviews are essential tools for uncovering prevalent knowledge gaps, unifying fragmented bodies of scholarship, and taking stock of the cumulative evidence in a field of inquiry (Bodolica & Spraggon, (2018). The literature review is critical for citing and including a comprehensive reference list. The review section sums up the aim and objectives of the paper and states the relevance of the study and possible implications. To determine and discern quality studies, the quantitative realm for mediocre findings of a research critique is an unbiased evaluation of a study’s strengths, weaknesses and limitations. The review usually concludes with the reader’s summary of the study’s merits, recommendations concerning the value of the evidence, and suggestions about improving the study. Empirical research should be well communicated, brief, and organized; however, research critiques of a single study are developed for various reasons and they differ in competence (Coughlan et al., 2007). The top five criteria for selecting high quality quantitative empirical articles for a literature review is what I placed on each one of my weekly folders which are vital reading steps: A.—Abstract (read the abstract first) B.—Findings & Conclusions (seek for findings and conclusions that were found) C.—Methodology (review the methods section to understand the origin of the data/methods used to collect it) D.—Literature review (review the literature section with a thumb on reference page to identify relevant literature for inclusion in the reading list) E.—References (reference page contains the list of valid research to determine what has been studied that creates space for further research). The literature review should be a varied description of the methods, instruments and sample that will allow either researchers to duplicate the study; furthermore, the discussion should be analytic, logical and comprehensive and support the hypothesis. Finally, successfully producing rigorous, coherent, thought-provoking, and practically relevant review articles represents an extremely complex and challenging endeavor. Tammy References: Barnett, D.
