Description:
A literature review provides a basis for consolidating research findings within a specific area into a cohesive document that gives a clear indication of current progress, limitations and future directions of the research stream. It allows practitioners and researchers alike to keep abreast of the latest research findings (e.g., on evidence-based therapeutic interventions). The aim of this paper is to provide a practical overview of how to conduct and write up a literature review. Further to discussing the practicalities of how to carry out a literature search, the structure and methodology of a review article are considered. Finally, the subjects of formatting and publication are examined.
Keywords:
