Learning from Others

and Reviewing the


Literature
RESEARCH 1

literature related to your selected area.
The review should describe, summarize, evaluate and clarify this
literature. It should give a theoretical basis for the research and help

are:

subject
What Materials to Review?

took words, ideas, figures, images, etc. from another place.
 Citations are a short way to uniquely identify a published work (e.g. book,
article, chapter, web site). They are found in bibliographies and reference lists
