Research and Learning skills: Literature Reviews

Literature reviews : Quick Tips

A literature review allows you to find out what research has already been carried out on a topic.

It is important to not only summarize relevant research, but also:

  • Evaluate the research
  • Describe relationships between different pieces of research
  • Describe how the literature relates to your essay or report topic/research area
  • Identify any gaps in the research (these can be used as a basis for further research)
