Q. What is a literature review?


Whether it is part of a larger assignment, or a standalone piece in itself, a literature review covers the process of reading, reviewing, and evaluating a selection of sources about a particular topic. You are being asked to look at what other authors have said and to analyse and assess their contributions. Our 'Doing a Literature Review' eLearning tutorial takes you through the six stages of a Literature review - introduction, plan, get information, evaluate, organise and write.

We also have a 'reviewing literature and paraphrasing' study guide, which provides a detailed guide for conducting a literature review.
