Ethics and Corporate Responsibility
You are to show evidence of your research by providing a literature review of three resources you will be using for your final paper. In addition, you will be asked to provide a trial introduction for your paper.

So, what is a review of the literature?

A research review is an account of what has been published on a topic by accredited scholars and researchers. Sometimes it is part of the introduction to an essay, research report, or thesis. In writing the research review, your purpose is to convey to your reader what knowledge and ideas have been already written about a topic, and what their strengths and weaknesses are. As a piece of writing, the research review must be defined by a guiding concept (e.g., your research objective, the problem or issue you are discussing, or your argumentative thesis). It is not just a descriptive list of the material available and/or a set of summaries.

This project enhances your knowledge about the topic and helps you gain skills in the following areas.

information seeking: the ability to review the literature efficiently, using manual or computerized methods, or to identify a set of useful articles and books
critical appraisal: the ability to apply principles of analysis to identify unbiased and valid studies or reviews.
A research review should do the following:

be organized around and related directly to the thesis or research question you are developing
synthesize results into a summary of what is and is not known
identify areas of controversy in the literature
formulate questions that need further research
