Literature Search

Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on a practice problem of interest. This literature search should include both quantitative and qualitative peer research articles to support your practice problem or issue of interest in 350-750 words. Identify six peer research articles which will be utilized through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. 

Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.

Suggestions for locating qualitative and quantitative research articles from credible sources:

Use a library database such as CINAHL

Complete for your search.

Using the advanced search page check the box beside “Research Article” in the “Limit Your Results” section.

When setting up the search you can type your topic in the top box, then add quantitative or qualitative as a search term in one of the lower boxes.

Research articles often are described as qualitative or quantitative.

To narrow/broaden your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that  arrow or broaden your main topic. For example:

Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis.

To determine what research design was used, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The
author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student
