  21. 21. Tips for writing Literature Review
  22. 22. Literature Review FOCUS on the meat of the article not their lit reviews: Findings, Discussion, Results….Avoid any sentences in the paper that cite someone else! use sentences written by the author you are reading. No personal stories- or really cool introductions- no OPINION and no arguing the “obvious” point of view- there is no BIAS in lit reviews Make sure that you are not neglecting key studies in the field. Make sure your sources are relevant both on topic and timeliness. ITS OK TO HAVE ARTICLES THAT DO NOT AGREE WITH YOU. Address them and see why they may not match the findings of other research (different population, different variables, different analysis etc.) This is NOT a book report- you need to synthesize your articles- arrange them by concept or theme or similarities- differences- Some articles may be mentioned in more than one section. One section may only have one relevant article. don't forget to mention any limitations and future research that should be done on your topic!
