the discussion section of your literature review will discuss the final articles selected in your methods section. This will be a discussion of the themes identified throughout your articles. For example, I am reviewing the literature on older adults and disaster preparedness. I find 20 peer-reviewed journal articles. The findings of these articles together might indicate there are several barriers to preparedness for older adults: financial, ability to go purchase items, storing preparedness items and ability to receive timely risk communications. These would be the themes of my discussion and I would cite the articles that supported the themes.
- Section III Discussion Section: This is the section where you summarize and discuss your final
- 20 articles. You will need to think critically about the data and help your readers understand patterns within these data.
