The main body- this should include:
Current research studies you have located;
The major questions that are being asked in your selected articles; The current findings from your selected articles; The major themes you have located throughout the literature you selected; The general conclusions that are being drawn.
Conclusion- this should include:
A summary of the major agreements and disagreements about the focus area;
Any implications of the design of the research in the articles for the overall approach for your own research project.
