Using the Literature MATRIX

As you read and  evaluate your literature there are several different ways to organize  your research. One of these ways to organize your work using a “matrix”


No, not this, matrix, but the one attached to this discussion (Appendix G).  

This  document allows you to compile details about your sources, such as the  foundational theories, methodologies, and conclusions; begin to note  similarities among the authors, and retrieve citation information for  easy insertion within a document.


  1. Instructions:
    1. Conduct a rapid critical analysis of the five (5) articles (use the articles used in discussion 5).
    2. Title the discussion with the PICOT question.

      1. Choose one of the research studies in the Matrix table (Appendix G).

      8. Limitations (who funded the research, was the sample too small).
    4. Peer response: Identify two (2) students that may share a similar question and comment in their literature matrix post. Remmeb
    5. Cite your references APA 7th  ed. (not included in the length of the post).
