“How important is reviewing the literature for a project?”
Reviewing the literature on a topic of interest is the first step into scientific inquiry. Scholars seek to identify the current state of knowledge in the field, important questions under investigation, and gaps that require further study. Reviewing the literature is an iterative process that involves close, critical reading of pertinent sources, comparing and contrasting key concepts covered, and the synthesis of findings into a coherent narrative.
Reviewing the literature on a given topic yields a large amount of information about studies, concepts, findings, and conclusions that can easily be overwhelming. To avoid getting lost in a sea of details, it helps to take systematic notes about what you read and how it might support your inquiry. Pongpearchan (2016) provides a good example of how to develop hypotheses from a review of the literature. The author depicts the conceptual model for this study that explains the effect of transformational leadership on strategic human resource management (SHRM) impacting business success (Figure 1, p. 54). Garavan, Shanahan, Carbery, and Watson (2016) present a framework that explains the concept of “‘dynamic’ strategic human resource development capabilities (DSHRDCs),” which provide a “lens to understand how SHRD contributes to organizational performance through the development of capabilities” (p. 289).

DAY 3: INITIAL POST
Post the complete reference and link to one of the articles from your literature matrix. Explain the criteria you used to make your selection and why you feel that this article is important for your inquiry.
DAY 5: RESPONSES TO CLASSMATES
Reply to at least two of your classmates’ posts with a brief reflection on their initial posts. For each, share one additional article that may help your classmate in his or her inquiry. Include the complete reference and a link to the article along with your rationale for how it contributes to your classmate’s topic.
By way of this collaboration, you not only will support your classmates but also will extend your own knowledge about additional topics that follow the themes of this course, beyond the ones you are researching yourself.
DAY 7: REFLECTION
Post a reflection on what surprised you, what you still need to understand about the topic, and what you learned from your classmates.
