Search the Pierce College library databases to locate at least five scientific journal articles that contain information to help answer your question. You must cite at least five articles in the review. Also provide a Literature cited section according to format provided. Write a 2-3 paragraph literature review summary of the scientific literature as it relates to your question, using parenthetical citations as appropriate. Be sure to address any gaps in the scientific knowledge on this topic or any controversies that exist. The Introduction section of most scientific papers is a good indication of what the review should look like.

The Literature Cited section contains an alphabetical list of all the papers cited in the scientific journal article. This does not mean every article you found in your research; only include the works you actually cited in the text of your paper.

A standard format is used both to cite literature in the text and to list these studies in the Literature Cited section.  Hypothetical examples of the format used in the journal Ecology are below:

   Djorjevic, M., D.W. Gabriel and B.G. Rolfe. 1987. Rhizobium: Refined parasite of legumes. Annual Review of Phytopathology 25: 145-168.

   Jones, I. J. and B. J. Green. 1963. Inhibitory agents in walnut trees. Plant Physiology 70:101-152.

   MacArthur, R.H. and E.O. Wilson. 1967. The Theory of Island Biogeography. Princeton University Press, Princeton, N.J.

   Smith, E. A. 1949. Allelopathy in walnuts. American Journal of Botany 35:1066-1071.

Here is a dissection of the first entry, in the format for Ecology:  

   Firstauthor, M., D.W. Secondauthor and B.G. Thirdauthor. Year. Article title with only the first letter capitalized. Journal Name with Important Words in Caps  volume#(issue# if there is one): firstpage-lastpage.

Notice some of the following details:  

   – the list is alphabetized overall (DON’T change order of author names from what is given for each paper);
   – no first or middle names are listed (the author’s first and middle initials are used instead);
   – only the first word in the title of the journal article (except for proper nouns and scientific taxonomy) is capitalized;
   – different journals use different styles for Literature Cited sections. Scientific journals do NOT use the same styles you may have learned in other classes (MLA, APA, etc).  

You should pay careful attention to details of formatting when you write your own Literature Cited section.

For papers published in journals you must provide the date, title, journal name, volume number, and page numbers. For books you need the publication date, title, publisher, and place of publication. You will only be using journal articles for this paper. 

Literature Cited for the above examples looks like this:
