I did not see this coming, but we learn as we go right? I am also getting a lot of questions about how to work with a literature matrix, so I made you a video to help out. A couple of other things I noticed since making the video are:
- Make your settings so that anyone with the link can view your matrix, otherwise, the coaches will not have access to grade it.
- If you are anything like me, it will be easier to discern patterns in the literature if you make a single document with 30 rows (aka 30 articles) instead of one document with 30 tabs (one per article).
- You may change your research question at any time if you find that your question is not suitable to meet the assignment requirements. However, the longer you wait you will find yourself more in a time crunch because of how fast-paced the term is.
The following video includes instructions on how-to:
1) Access a specific database (SportDISCUS)
2) Enter multiple search terms (i.e. "Organizational Justice" AND "Sport*" OR "athle*")
3) Set search parameters to only include peer-reviewed articles
4) Save PDFs of the articles
5) Create and share a literature matrix on google sheets
