Tips on writing your Literature Review

The Literature Review

The Literature Review is the next important step in your thesis introduction. Different from an annotated bibliography, the review of the literature you have used (books, journal articles, periodicals, etc.), should:

  1. Review your discipline style: APA, Chicago, Harvard, and so on.
  2. Show that you are familiar with the essential background information on your topic.
  3. Help your reader understand your thesis.
  4. Tell your reader what has already been written about your topic.
  5. Show that your thesis is original and has not already been covered by someone else.
  6. Show where your study will fit in with the current body of literature on the topic and within your field. Think in terms of “what gap will my project fill?”
