Note: Identify themes from the publications in an effort to organize the publications into a logical format. Do not use subheadings for the themes, rather, introduce the new theme in the first sentence of the first paragraph when you are switching themes. Also, be careful not to provide an annotated bibliography (i.e., each paragraph describes only one study). Rather, comparing and contrasting publications on the same theme contributes to a thoughtful review of the literature. A minimum of 10 publications should be in this review draft.
Key concepts, themes, similarities, differences, strengths, and weaknesses should be part of the literature review
Summarize and synthesize the review of literature (last paragraph) o highlight what is known about the problem, identify any gaps in the literature
