A Multidisciplinary Literature Review

Process and write about your sources to:

  • Synthesize and evaluate
  • Identify and shed light on gaps in the literature / research
    • identify new interpretations
    • resolve conflicts in contradictory studies
    • avoid duplication of effort - yet be open to confirmation and building
    • point the way forward for future research projects
  • Connect the literature to your project 
  • Place your work in the context of existing research  

Example:
