Literature Search Question (LSQ) Assignment As we have discussed, a good LSQ is an effective rhetorical tool that scholars can use to identify the scope of an investigation. Remember, when writing an LSQ:
1)Choose an appropriate topic or issue: one that is both interesting and researchable.
2) Compile a list of every question related to the topic that you would like answered.
3)Choose a question that is not too broad, vague, or narrow.
Two examples of good questions are:
1)What does the literature in psychology tell us about the relationship between anticipated stigma and medication adherence for Asian-Americans over 18 who are taking HIV medications?
2)What does the literature in psychology tell us about the role of positive and negative reinforcement in potty-training practices for children with autism ages 5 to 6 who are not yet potty trained?
