MGMT6794 Literature Review and Criticism
- 6 points
|Trimester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- This unit requires students to prepare a critical review of the literature, a summary of the major research problems previously studied and their contributions, and to identify suitable research questions for investigation. The unit prepares students for doctoral research.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate an understanding of the literature relevant to the proposed research topic; (2) reflect critically on the relevant literature in terms of methodological, empirical and theoretical constructs; (3) synthesise the body of literature examined into a holistic and readable report; (4) discriminate between literature that is pertinent to research and literature that is less relevant; (5) demonstrate an understanding of research methodologies and approaches used by researchers in their field of research; (6) identify relevant seminal works including areas of agreement and controversy; (7) identify possible research gaps which could form the basis of new research questions; (8) reference appropriately; and (9) develop a bibliography using EndNote.
- Assessment information is provided in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
