5 Essential Ingredients For Writing A Literature Review

Most of the times, I find students struggling with literature review. I have always tried to make it simple for us all, so as today. Unlike other students, I have relied upon my abilities and skills more than following a traditional and standard method for writing it. The benefit to it is: I have always enjoyed remarks like “What a unique style!”, “Where did you get it from?”, “Is your tutor that smart?” and I have always accepted the remarks and criticism open heartedly.

It is quiet beneficial to target your work’s purposes. The 2 effective purposes for a literature review (in my opinion) are:

The 5 essential components are:

  • Organization: It is the key to write a literature review; the research question should be related to the thesis and it should support what you are trying to develop from it
  • The results of the known and unknown aspects should also be summarized in the literature review. To quote every important point, this can help draw the attention of readers as well.
  • Usually, I look forward to those published books that allow room for some controversy. Stating controversial points can give you an immediate response
  • A literature review should be written and based upon such questions that allow researching.  The more you widen the path of exploring, the further it will help you develop a great review.
  • Selecting a book that targets a particular problem, or providing a solution to some issue is the most desired.
