Literature Review Assignment

The purpose of this chapter is to review and critically analyse the academic literature pertinent to the research question(s) – this chapter also provides material to be used in the data collection stage.

To do this successfully the student should:

  • Ensure the reviewed literature is relevant by using the research question(s) as sub-headings, at least in the draft stage.
  • Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the academic debates relevant to their topic.
  • Critically analyse key contributions, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, testing their internal consistency, and acknowledging and presenting the inevitable counter-arguments.
  • Avoid presenting literature uncritically – this does not demonstrate understanding.
  • Avoid presenting only the positive side of an argument, as a researcher he/she must acknowledge and evaluate the negative aspects of their chosen topic.
  • Summarize the chapter and introduce the next chapter.
