One of the key components of a capstone paper is the literature review, which should synthesize major research studies that are relevant to the student's research question.

Effective use of the university's Global Campus Library Services can contribute to the successful completion of your capstone project. In the following interactive learning module, you will be guided through the process of researching a topic and writing a literature review. You will learn how to identify, evaluate and use scholarly information, and you'll develop skills that will help with research and writing throughout your educational, professional and personal endeavors. You will be able to assess your skills at various points throughout the module, and you are encouraged to complete an evaluation of your draft literature review before including it as part of your capstone research paper.

Before you begin your research, you can learn more about literature reviews and the research process in the background readings and other resources linked from the RESOURCES box on the left side of this page. You will also take a short QUIZ that will help you to recognize and define key concepts that you'll encounter as you complete this module.
