b. Overview describing the importance of the research topic to current business and professional practice in your own words.

d. Review of the Literature summarized in your own words.

A literature review is a summary of the major points and findings of each of the selected articles (with appropriate citations). Direct quotations should be used sparingly. Normally, this will be the largest section of your paper (this is not a requirement; just a general observation).
