What is Literature Review

The literature related to any subject forms a foundation for further study of the issues related to it. An understanding of past theories and concepts is essential if one wants to propound a new theory or prove a viewpoint. This understanding comes from an in depth critical analysis of literature sources available on the topic. This process is named literature review and is crucial for all research scholars as an important element of a research article, report, thesis or an academic proposal. It involves thorough reading, analysis and evaluation of scholarly material.

While the literature review chapter is a part of all research works at the masters or PhD level, sometimes, it may also be presented as a paper in a standalone manner.

Tips For Writing Literature Review

Through years of experience, we have developed some basic rules for writing a fantastic literature review chapter. Here, our team shares some tips that will definitely help you.

  • Start by introducing the research question or the issue being addressed through the study
  • Write about the trend which is observed in the resources which are related to the topic, regarding the views, methodologies, etc.
  • Point out the research gap or inconsistency in conclusions, if it is found after a thorough analysis of resources
  • Since it is a critical review of literature, the criteria used for reviewing must be made clear
  • Define the scope of the chapter, i.e., why a certain work has been included or excluded
  • The sequence in which you present the references must be clear and uniform. If you are following a chronological pattern, maintain it throughout for all references. The grouping can also be done on the basis of qualitative and quantitative methodologies, works that support and oppose the issue, alphabetical order by names of authors/books, etc.
  • You must summarize each work to emphasize the result it draws
  • Briefly mention how the findings mentioned in the references impact the area of study
  • At the end, it is advisable to present the comparison between the references in a tabular form for easy understanding

Follow these suggestions and you will be closer to creating an outstanding literature review.
