This week, you will write a mini-scientific literature review. It is mini because you will only be
reviewing two sources.
For this literature review assignment, it will be on:
COPD: treatment protocols
Remember, in a scientific review, focus your analysis on author’s hypothesis (thesis), scientific
method used in the research, and the results of the study presented. In a scientific literature
review, the reviewer (you) identifies what he/she perceives as the strengths and weaknesses of
the study, and analyzes the author’s findings and conclusions.
For this review, be sure to:
Select two relevant and appropriate scholarly articles that address the topic you chose.
Present a thorough literature review of both articles by summarizing, synthesizing, and
evaluating the materials.
Demonstrate understanding of the content presented in the articles.
Include a critical assessment of the sources. Do not simply include a summary of what you have
Incorporate citations into your body paragraphs; incorporate the essential and most relevant
supporting evidence eloquently and appropriately.
Present your writing in a clear, organized manner.
Provide a strong introduction and conclusion, including further questions for research.
Use proper APA format with proper citations. Review APA Citations Here
Your literature review should be 2–3 pages in length. Remember, you will need to use APA
formatting in your literature review and include a title page and a reference page.
