Organize the main conceptual relationships and document them with previously reported studies. Offer some critique of previous work. Report on the range and type of procedures used in conducting research in the area. Identify important aspects of the research methodology. Note the gaps found in existing literature. Indicate directions for additional research studies.

3 Literature review Literature Reviews What have others said about this topic? What theories address the topic and what do the theories say? What research has been done previously?

4 Literature review Use up-to-date literature : ideally, you would like to choose “up-to- date” studies that were recently published (if not recent, they should be “classics”) that have appeared in high-quality peer- reviewed publications. This is not always possible depending on the topic/ question… Use the on-line abstract indexes/ databases on the Columbia Library web pages Start with Social Work Abstracts on-line search Search other databases where relevant (Ageline, Psych-Info, Sociofile, MEDLINE, ERIC) Go to the Social Work Library home page and access resources in your research area – you may find annotated bibliographies and other reference resources here. Search entries in the Encyclopedia of Social Work and Social Workers’ Desk Reference (both should be available in the reference section in Social Work Library) – check references at the back of the entry.

5 Problem Formulation Problem Formulation (an issue & a population) What exactly do you want to study? Why is it worth studying? (Cite the facts and be specific). In what ways does the proposed research question have significance for practice & policy?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
