A literature review reviews the most recent and important literature on a topic in psychology.
Preparatory work for writing the literature review includes proposing a topic and searching for references using the
PsycINFO electronic database.
After you have secured three articles on your topic and read them, you
will (a) write a brief introductory paragraph about your topic, (b) develop several well-written paragraphs summarizing
the research that you found in your literature search, (c) write a final summary paragraph
that helps readers understand the most important aspects of the research literature, (d) a reference page in APA format using the research literature you have cited in your paper
