Email Question of the Month:
. . . At present I am writing my PhD at the University of West Indies Trinidad and Tobago. I am pursuing a Doctoral Degree in the area of Health Economics. The topic I have chosen for my research is: “The implementation of National Health Insurance in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago: The choice method of physician’s reimbursement services”. I am trying to find information on “literature review”. I want to view a sample of a literature review using the Chicago style. Also, how long must a literature review be??????
Thank you for contacting me at TADA! Thesis and Dissertation Accomplished. Writing a literature requires that you are able to tell a full story rather than worrying about the number of pages. See Part 2 of my newsletter on TA-DA!™ Graduates —
Congratulations on Your Success
Dear Dr. Carter,
. . . I am a student at Howard, or should I say former student since I actually completed my doctoral program. I am happy to say that your advice, CD, talk at Howard and newsletter helped in the process. Thank you very, very, very, much. . .
