Submit a comprehensive literature review presenting an analysis* of current expert thought on a question of your choice exploring a contemporary health issue

Submit a comprehensive literature review presenting an analysis* of current expert thought on a question of your choice exploring a contemporary health issue. It should be either an article that could be sent to a health journal for possible publication, or an edited draft of the literature review chapter of a research thesis.
*This means you must provide your own analyses and syntheses of the literature. This task requires more than the summaries of individual articles. If you are unclear about this instruction, go back to the relevant learning materials in the unit and revise.
Marking/Assessment criteria for Assignment 2
Criteria Example of application Weighting
Structure:
• Organisation of material • The content of the report is organised into sections such as: Abstract, Introduction/Background, Research method and results, Discussion/Implications (Own analyses of the themes that are drawn from literature review), Limitations, Conclusion and reference list.
• The report answers the research questions raised in Assessment 1. However, there should not be any unnecessary duplication of content from Assignment 1.
15%
Critical Analysis:
• logically developed argument
• presentation of accurate evidence • The introduction/background clearly explains the value addition of the literature review and provides evidence of such value addition in the discussion.
• The report provides accurate and detailed information for the method, results, limitation etc.
• The report provides own analysis and synthesis of the literature.
– The analysis is thorough e.g. covering both the supporting and opposing views of the literature.
– The synthesis addresses implications to practice and literature. However, it is important not to expand the implications of your work beyond what is reasonable from the evidence in the report.
– It is absolutely necessary not to make the report just a summary of individual articles. 35%
Sources:
• appropriate sources used
• appropriate acknowledgement of sources
• consistent and appropriate referencing method • Accessed different sources (e.g. scholarly text books, peer reviewed journals, reports from government and non-government agencies, conference proceedings, fact books in printed or electronic versions) in engaging with the relevant literature
• Referred to adequate number of literatures; e.g. 20 for HS454, 25 for HS554A and 50 for HS554B (guide only). Remember there are 2 types of sources included in a literature review. The number of articles included for review should arise from a sound search strategy
• References should be as current as possible. For instance, literature published before last 10 years will not attract marks, unless the old literature has justified and specific foundational value.
