Conducting a Scholarly Literature Review


Abstract: A literature review is a systematic, topic focused, reproducible method of identifying, evaluating and interpreting existing literature (a body of recorded work) that has been produced by scholars, researchers and practitioners. Producing a scholarly literature review is not easy and often new scholars do not know where to start. It is the purposes of this article to: (a) identify the reasons for a literature review; (b) delineate how to go about accessing relevant literature; (c) present important issues to consider when reading and critiquing literature relevant to the review; and, (d) discuss important factors to address when summarizing and writing the results of a literature review
