Research Writing: How to Do a Literature Review

This online course has explored how to plan and develop a literature review. We have covered what a literature review is, and when we typically need to write one. We looked at how to begin, useful tools to help, and considered what can go wrong. We discussed the value of articulating questions to drive the discussion of academic literature, and how writing annotations, concept maps and outlines can effectively prepare you for the writing of your literature review.
