Directions: Mining Existing Literature Reviews Assignment

Locate three dissertations on topics related to your own dissertation research. These may be the same dissertations you located for your second discussion question in Module1.

For each dissertation, locate the literature review (typically Chapter 2) and mine it by constructing an outline of it. Use the given headings as Roman numerals and the subheadings as capital letters in your outline. Follow standard APA outlining format to add additional levels of detail.

Compile a single list of the authors you see cited in each literature review, and identify the topics on which each is writing. A table that identifies the author in one column and a broad topic in a second column is an excellent way to preserve this information.

Write a brief summary (125-250 words) of the literature reviews you mined to submit along with your outlines and author/topic list that you created. Address the following questions about the literature reviews you have just mined:

  • 1- What do you notice about the organization of the literature reviews of the three dissertations? Are they organized chronologically, thematically, or in some other form (if other, identify)? Why might the researcher have chosen this organizational structure?
  • 2- As you observe the content of the three studies, what common ideas (themes) do you see?
  • 3- How do these themes relate to your dissertation topic?
