Note that such discussions may have either substantive [a potential new policy], theoretical [a potential new understanding], or methodological [a potential new way of analyzing] significance.When thinking about the potential implications of your study, ask the following questions:.Be specific about the methodological approaches you plan to undertake to obtain information, the techniques you would use to analyze the data, and the tests of external validity to which you commit yourself [i.e., the trustworthiness by which you can generalize from your study to other people, places, events, and/or periods of time].

Since a literature review is information dense, it is crucial that this section is intelligently structured to enable a reader to grasp the key arguments underpinning your study in relation to that of other researchers.

The purpose is to reflect upon gaps or understudied areas of the current literature and describe how your proposed research contributes to a new understanding of the research problem should the study be implemented as designed.

The conclusion reiterates the importance or significance of your proposal and provides a brief summary of the entire study.

Thus, the objective here is to convince the reader that your overall research design and methods of analysis will correctly address the problem and that the methods will provide the means to effectively interpret the potential results.

Your design and methods should be unmistakably tied to the specific aims of your study.

A good strategy is to break the literature into "conceptual categories" [themes] rather than systematically describing groups of materials one at a time.

Note that conceptual categories generally reveal themselves after you have read most of the pertinent literature on your topic so adding new categories is an on-going process of discovery as you read more studies.

Do not be afraid to challenge the conclusions of prior research.

Assess what you believe is missing and state how previous research has failed to adequately examine the issue that your study addresses.
