For this assignment you will submit a 15 page paper, not including the title and reference pages, on the Mental Health of Inmates.
The Literature Review Paper will include brief summaries of the 6 to 8 articles focused on the Mental Health of Inmates.
The summaries in this paper must be logically connected with clear articulations of how they are related to one another. This must be done via transition statements between descriptions of the various summaries such that the paper interweaves all the articles into a coherent and well-articulated review of scholarly publications related to the selected paper topic focus. For example, after one article summary, the statement, “Related research conducted by Jones (2011) showed that…” would be an effective means of connecting it to another summary. The paper will end with a minimum of two paragraphs summarizing points made and articulating suggestions for future research directions arising from the article reviews. This assignment submission will be evaluated based on:
The degree to which the article summaries are related and truly integrated within the paper; lack of supporting evidence of actual connections between the articles will result in a significant point deduction.
Evidence of academically mature insight and use of critical thinking skills in analyzing and relating the articles.
Clear and thorough articulation of the paper’s key points.
Compliance with APA paper formatting standards.
Minimal to no grammar, spelling or basic writing errors
