Final Notes1• A literature review is a piece of discursive prose, not a list describing or summarizing one piece of literature after another.• Its usually a bad sign to see every paragraph beginning with the name of a researcher.• Instead, organize the literature review into sections that present themes or identify trends, including relevant theory.
Final Notes2• If you are writing an annotated bibliography, you may need to summarize each item briefly, but should still follow through themes and concepts and do some critical assessment of material.• Use an overall introduction and conclusion to state the scope of your coverage and to formulate the question, problem, or concept your chosen material illuminates.
