What is a literature review?
The literature review
In many university courses, students need to write literature reviews as part of their studies.
A literature review is:
• a review of writings, or literature, on a particular subject/topic
• a review of the most relevant, recent and scholarly work in the subject/topic area
• a piece of writing that supports, evaluates and critiques your research topic.
A literature review is not:
• a summary of articles, texts or journals; or
• An analytical, opinionative or argumentative essay.
The purpose of a literature review is to:
• establish a theoretical framework for your topic/subject area
• define key terms, definitions and terminology
• identify studies, models, case studies, etc., supporting your topic
• define/establish your area of study, i.e. your research topic.
The three key points of a literature review are:
• what the research says (theory)
• how the research was carried out (methodology)
• what is missing, i.e. the gap that your research intends to fill.
