Writing a Literature Review
The literature review is the section of your paper in which you cite and briefly review the related research studies that have been conducted. In this space, you will describe the foundation on which your research will be/is built. You will:
- discuss the work of others
- evaluate their methods and findings
- identify any gaps in their research
- state how your research is different
The literature review should be selective and should group the cited studies in some logical fashion.
