  • Chronological: If your review follows the chronological method, you can write about the information according to when they were published. Another way is to organize the sources by trends. Thematic: Thematic reviews of literature are organized around a topic or issue, rather that the progression of time. Methodological approach differs from the two above in that the focusing factor usually does not have to do with the content of the material. Instead, it focuses on the “methods” of the researcher or writer.
