The primary goal of this literature review is to integrate concepts  from four different content domains within the larger field of  psychology. The four content domains should be chosen from previous  coursework in this program. In this paper, students will review the  findings in the individual empirical articles, organize the research in a  meaningful way, evaluate the reliability, validity, and  generalizability of the research findings, and present an integrated  synthesis of the research that sheds new light on the topics within and  across the four domains.

The result of a successful integrative literature review may be a  significant contribution to a particular body of knowledge and,  consequently, to research and practice. Therefore, before writing this  literature review, substantive new research must be conducted via the  Internet and within the Ashford University Library for each of the four  chosen domains. A minimum of six sources must be included for each of  the four domains. Although content from literature reviews completed in  prior courses within this program may be included, it may not constitute  the total research for the individual domains addressed within this  assignment. No more than four sources from previous literature reviews  completed in this program may be utilized for this integrative review.

The headings listed below must be used within the paper to delineate  the sections of content. These sections include the following: a clear  introduction that provides a general review and organizes the research  in a meaningful way; a discussion in which the evidence is presented  through analysis, critique, and synthesis; and a conclusion in which the  discussion is drawn together in a meaningful way, the claims of the  introduction are brought to a logical closure, and new research is  proposed.

The four domains: Applied Social Psychology, Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Learning and Cognition, Personality Theory

 

                                                                 Introduction

    • 2. How are the domains connected?
    • 3. Are there competing points of view across the domains?
    • 4. Why is the integration of these domains important?
    • 5. What is the history of these domains?
    • 6. What are the related theories or findings?
    • Describe how the literature was identified, analyzed, and synthesized.
  •         How and why was the literature chosen?
  •          What is your claim or thesis statement?

 

                                                                  Discussion

  • Provide the analysis, critique, and synthesis for the review.

Analysis

  • 1. Examine the main ideas and relationships presented in the literature across the four domains.
  • 2. Integrate concepts from the four different content domains within the larger field of psychology.
  • 3. What claim(s) can be made in the introduction?
  • 4. What evidence supports the claim(s) made in the introduction?

Critique 

  • 1. Evaluate the reliability, validity, and generalizability of the chosen research findings.
  • 2. How well does the literature represent the issues across the four domains?
  • 3. Identify the strengths and the key contributions of the literature.
  • 4. What, if any, deficiencies exist within the literature?
  • 5. Have the authors omitted any key points and/or arguments?
  • 6. What, if any, inaccuracies have been identified in the literature?
  • 7. What evidence runs contrary to the claims proposed in the  introduction, and how might these be reconciled with the claims  presented?
  • 8. Explain how the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code  of Conduct might influence the reliability and/or generalizability of  the chosen findings.
  • 9. Did the ethical issues influence the outcomes of the research?
  • 10. Were ethical considerations different across the domains?

 

Synthesis

  • 1. Integrate existing ideas with new ideas to create new knowledge and new perspectives.
  • 2. Describe the research that has previously been done across these  domains, as well as any controversies or alternate opinions that  currently exist.
  • 3. Relate the evidence presented to the major conclusions being made.
  • 4. Construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based  psychological concepts and theories to posit new relationships and  perspectives on the topics within the domains.

 

Conclusion

  • 1. Provide a conclusion and present potential future considerations.
  • State your final conclusion(s).
  • 2. Synthesize the findings described in the discussion into a succinct summary.
  • 3. What questions remain?
  • 4. What are the possible implications of your argument for existing theories and for everyday life?
  • 5. Are there novel theories and/or testable hypothesizes for future research?
  • 6. What do the overarching implications of the studies show?
  • 7. Where should the research go from this point to further the understanding of these domains and the greater study of psychology?
