HOW TO WRITE A GOOD LITERATURE REVIEW


(OWN GUIDE)

What is a Literature Review?


A literature review is an evaluative report of information found in the literature related to your
selected area of study. The review should describe, summarise, evaluate and clarify this
literature. It should give a theoretical base for the research and help you (the author) determine
the nature of your research. Works which are irrelevant should be discarded and those which
are peripheral should be looked at critically. (https://libguides.library.cqu.edu.au/litreview)
