In Software Engineering technical literature the references about the benefits of software inspections are abundant. In contrast, some authors raise the problem of low adoption of this process. From this issue a literature review is made to produce a map on most researched topics in the area, factors causing low adoption and possible solutions. Results showed a list of 64 articles selected using a search protocol, which were classified according to a defined taxonomy. The founded factors were codified and a list of solutions founded in the reviewed papers was made. The main conclusion was that most of the factors causing low adoption are related to developers perceptions about the process, lack of training and some characteristics of the process as the rigidity, complexity and the difficulty of connecting the effort made with the final product quality. These factors should be studied in future works.
