  6. 6. 1. What is the problem, why is it a problem, and how are you planning to approach it in your paper? The answer is your Introduction. 2. What have others in the field done or written about the problem? The answer is the Review of Literature. 3. How did (or, in a proposal, will) you study the problem? The answer is the Research Design and Methods section. GUIDELINES IN WRITING
  7. 7. 4. What did you (or, in a proposal, stated in general terms, do you expect to) find? The answer is the Results. 5. What do the findings seem to mean? Interpret them for the reader. The answer is the Discussion. 6. What is (or do you expect will be) the significance of the findings? What should the reader remember as the most important point(s) of your paper? The answer is the Conclusion (and it may include Recommendations for further action or further research). GUIDELINES IN WRITING
  8. 8. A researcher makes the mistake of rushing into planning and carrying out the study before making a thorough survey of the literature. You, the researcher, must relate your topic to existing knowledge in your area of interest. It is important for you as a person engaged in research to be able to locate, organize, and use the literature in your field. 8 LITERATURE REVIEW
  9. 9.  A good familiarity with related research enables you, the investigator, to define the limits of current research and what new research is needed in the field.  An understanding of theory in the field enables you to place the question in perspective.  By studying related research, you learn which procedures and instruments have proven useful and which seem less promising and more likely to waste valuable time and effort.  A thorough search of related research avoids unintentional replication of previous studies.  A careful study of related literature puts you in a better position to interpret the significance of your own results. 9 IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF A REVIEW
  10. 10.  Carrying out a hurried review of the literature in order to get started on the research project.  Relying too heavily upon secondary sources.  Over-relying on Internet sources or accepting them uncritically.  Concentrating on the findings when reading research articles, and overlooking valuable information about methods, measures, and so forth.  Overlooking sources other than journals, such as newspapers and popular magazines; be sure, however, not to over rely on non-professional materials. 10 COMMON ERRORS IN THE REVIEW
  11. 11.  Failing to define satisfactorily the topic limits of the review of the literature.  Copying bibliographic data incorrectly and then being unable later to locate the reference you need.  Copying far too much material onto note cards. This often makes it look as if you do not have a clear understanding of the project and cannot separate important from unimportant information. 11 COMMON ERRORS IN THE REVIEW
  12. 12.  Your own library  DOST website  CHED-ZRC Website  Google and Google Scholar  ACM Digital Library (www.acm.org)  IEEE Electronic Library (www.ieee.org)  Patent search engines (wipo, google patents)  Authors of Papers 12 RESEARCH TOOLS AVAILABLE (KNOWING WHERE TO LOOK)
  13. 13. 1. Break down your concepts. Topic: Integrated Paperless Document Checking and Template -Based Editor for Electronic Thesis Compilation Concepts: Document Management Systems; Document Repository Systems; Document Checking Applications; Document Editor; Template Document Editor 2. Make a list of search terms for each concept. (Use synonyms in listing the search terms and/or other terms that suits the desired results) 3. Specify the logical relationships among your search terms. (AND, OR, NOT)  Do not use a question in searching. (e.g. What is the best searching algorithm?)  Do not use common words such as the, and, there, are.  Do not use special characters such as , . ! ? 13 KEY WORDING TECHNIQUES
  14. 14.  Do not use a question in searching. (e.g. What is the best searching algorithm?)  Do not use common words such as the, and, there, are.  Do not use special characters such as , . ! ? 14 KEY WORDING TECHNIQUES
  15. 15.  Identify search concept.  Identify keywords.  Identify the tools used and the difference of the results. 15 EXERCISE 1: KEYWORD SEARCHING
  16. 16.  Enumerate 5 guidelines in writing  Enumerate common errors in review writing.  List 3 key wording techniques SELF CHECK
