Literature Search, Part IOne of the more important questions you will need to ask and answer for yourself as you develop your research study is: “Which qualitative research approach best fits my research question?” You may be able to reframe your research question to fit more than one qualitative approach; generally, though, one of the available approaches is likely to fit better than the others once you have a well-defined question. The only way to make this determination is to develop a familiarity with different approaches.In this Discussion, you will conduct a literature review of your topic area, focusing your choice on a research study that uses one of the qualitative approaches covered this week.Looking for a particular kind of qualitative article on your topic may be more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack. Do not hesitate to broaden your search to incorporate related phenomena or different target groups in order to find a study.Go to the Walden Library for tips and strategies for efficient searching.Make sure you get the complete citation of the article, as well as the .pdf, because your Instructor will want to review the article.Be aware that your posting will first require an extensive article analysis. What you post is a summary of your work, not the entire analysis. This is good practice for summarizing and evaluating research for your capstone.To prepare for this Discussion:Review the reading materials about the different approaches in this week’s Learning Resources.Conduct your own literature search to find a published study that represents one of the approaches.Review the following resources before proceeding with your own article review:Document: R8360 Guidelines for Reading and Evaluating Qualitative Research Articles (PDF)Document: Example of How to Read and Evaluate a Qualitative Research Article (PDF)By Day 3Contribute a 3-paragraph Discussion post in which you respond to the following:Summarize the characteristics of the approach of the research article you chose during your literature search.Summarize the research article, including the citation and sufficient information for your classmates and Instructor to locate the article.Present a short critique of that article based on the “R8360 Guidelines for Reading and Evaluating Qualitative Research Articles” document.Required ReadingsPatton, M.
