Literature Reviews

This guide is designed to help you get started researching and writing literature reviews.

Planning a Literature Review

The first step in planning a literature review is to develop a research question. A research question will focus your project into a narrow topic. It will also guide how you conduct the project. A good research question will also help with information gathering because it will provide you with key words or concepts you can use in your search. 

There are many different types of literature reviews. Once you develop a research question, you will need to decide which type of review will be appropriate for your research project.
