RAS Week 5 Sociology Best Practices Literature Review

The formal search of the literature is an integral part of the research process. After identifying a research problem or topic for a study, the researcher must begin to gather as much information as possible about his or her topic. Beyond anecdotal or artifact types of information, the content of scholarly articles—?found in various databases and on the Internet—?represent the core of the formal literature review. The articles found in the literature review may be about research studies on topics similar to the one you have chosen, or they may be theoretical or conceptual in nature.

For this assignment, you will complete a literature review of best practices to address a hypothetical scenario presented in the instructions below.

By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following EPAs and practice behaviors:
