Writing a literature review: introduction
The introduction introduces the topic area. It points out the significance and the purpose of the literature review and explains how the literature review will be structured. An introduction includes: • a topic sentence, describing what will be covered; • the major themes of the review; and • a concluding sentence, summarising the specific focus of the literature review.
Writing a literature review: body
Body paragraphs Having organised your summaries of the readings around themes, you can begin to write the body paragraphs. Each section should deal with a specific aspect of the literature. The body paragraphs could include: • definitions of key terms and concepts • methodologies and methods in use • approaches to the subject (empirical, philosophical, historical etc.) • current and past research and discoveries about the topic • theoretical or ideological viewpoints (theoretical assumptions, differing political outlooks, other conflicts etc.) • principal questions being asked • general conclusions being drawn.
Writing a literature review: conclusion
The conclusion should include: • the main agreements and disagreements in the literature • any gaps in the literature and proposals for further research • your overall perspective on the topic. Your conclusion should demonstrate: • integration of research from various sources • comparison between similar and different ideas • depth of reading • analysis and critical evaluation of the literature.
A literature review: • analyses and synthesizes existing research • makes the gap in research clear • states the research question and thesis statement • requires time for research, reading, critical analysis, planning and writing.
