I. Rationale: In this section, let the reader know why you have chosen this area of study and why it is an important area for interpersonal communication scholars to study. Give the reader an idea of your general purpose. Develop a warrant (or argument) for studying what you chose.
Advance some hypotheses or pose a research question(s) which your scholarly review of literature will ultimately justify testing. End this section with your Research Question(s).
II. Database & Key Words: Describe online databases you used to conduct your library research (i.e. discuss all on-line indexes searched and be specific, e.g., Communication Source, Psych Lit, etc.) and what key words you used. You may use scholarly journals, books, and book chapters, or internet-based sources for which you can demonstrate scholarly credibility.
III. Bibliography: Present a minimum of 20-25 relevant sources (articles, books, book chapters from anthologies). This bibliography list constitutes an argument that you did a thorough search and are presenting the most important, relevant, and central sources available out there.
At least half of your sources must be data-based research reports. Focus your sources in communication as much as possible. References must be presented in correct APA 6th edition style with DOI number.
IV. Outline. Present a detailed outline of the major headings and topics that will appear in your Paper #2.
V. Sample literature review pages. From the draft outline of your paper, turn in 2-3 pages of your written-up literature review prose; probably it will cover one of the topic areas. Start with a subheading. Within these pages be sure you are synthesizing (drawing together) the ideas from at least six sources. Treat them as a group of information rather than separate articles.
