Description
Summary:"The Matrix Method is one of many ways to approach a literature review. It was created by Judith Garrard when she was preparing NIH grants and is intended to teach students how to read a paper, organize the review using the Matrix Method, analyze it, and create a narrative synthesis. This method is particularly useful in the health sciences. Review is usually the initial step for a proposal for independent scientific study, often a Master's project or doctoral dissertation, and traditionally done under the guidance of faculty or a mentor. Though Judy's background is not in nursing, the adoptions are primarily in graduate nursing programs. The text is not intended as a resource for developing academic writing skills. It provides a system for organizing and conducting a literature review and develops research literacy skills"--
