Discussion: The concept of doing a literature review
The concept of doing a literature review is very similar to research because it involves asking a question, collecting information and reviewing it to then write a final report on your findings (Polit & Beck, 2017). In order to write a review, certain aspects must be considered, such as the freshness of the information and how current it is. The reviewer must become familiar with the material and this is achieved by obtaining quality evidence (Polit & Beck, 2017).
Critiquing a research refers to the opinion the writer forms based on the quality of the material presented. It represents the strong points of the study and the areas in need of improvement. This is best done from a neutral standpoint, based solely on a single study (Polit & Beck, 2017). A writer’s passion for the topic, however, can be used to elaborate on the argument and analyze it fully (Cherry, 2020).
Critiquing a paper may be a skill that needs perfecting over time. There are many questions that can help organize the information and create a framework in order to provide the results (Cherry, 2020). There are key critiquing questions that address specific parts of the article such as the title, introduction, research question and conclusion (Polit & Beck, 2017). These questions include Is the title engaging? Is the information relevant to nursing? Were research questions and hypothesis clearly stated? Some questions also address the organization of the article, the writing style and the meaningfulness of the evidence reviewed.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
