n writing the literature review, the purpose is to convey to the reader what knowledge and ideas have been established on a topic, and what their strengths and weaknesses are. The literature review must be defined by a guiding concept. It is not just a descriptive list of the material available, or a set of summaries*
Each student must provide a literature review of relevant research on Hirschi and Gottfredson’s General Theory of Crime (Self-control theory). The following 2 articles MUST be incorporated into your review. You may choose one additional scholarly article using the GSU Library’s databases (Sage, Proquest, SocIndex):
Article #1: Sexual Harassment Victimization During Emerging Adulthood
Article #2: Self-control and perceived behavioral control: An examination of college student drinking
Literature Review Guidelines:
The literature review should be 5 pages in length and include an APA title and references page (7 total pages).
Minimum of 3 scholarly sources must be included. Your professor will provide 2 of the sources to be used and you will research the last one using the Library’s databases (see the Orientation module for help on this).
Intro paragraph that clearly explains the theory and your ‘guiding concept’ (narrow scope) ; clear thesis included
Review which makes it clear that you have read, evaluated and analyzed the research articles, and relationships and/or gaps between the literature are identified and articulated.
Succinct concluding statements which summarize the review in its entirety.
You will use a lot of paraphrasing in this paper. Always cite the author (in-text or parenthetical) when you paraphrase them. See the Orientation for more help on this.
No more than 5 one-sentence direct quotes can be used in this paper.
Use APA guidelines for formatting and referencing. See the Orientation module for more on APA writing and citation.
Demonstrate grade-level writing conventions – The use of the Writing Lab is suggested for editing.
