The literature review

A literature review is an analysis, critical evaluation and synthesis of previous research on a topic.  These online resources, which you can access with your University username and password, take you step-by-step through the process of undertaking your literature search and review.

For more information about literature searching and referencing, both key skills for a successful literature review, please see the workshops, worksheets and online course offered by the Research Skills Team.
