A literature review is an essential component of every research project. It requires “re-viewing” what credible scholars in the field have said, done, and found in order to help you:
As you read, you'll encounter various ideas, disagreements, methods, and perspectives which can be hard to organize in a meaningful way.
A synthesis matrix helps you record the main points of each source and document how sources relate to each other.
Librarians Sergio Chaparro and Kelsey Cheshire from VCU Libraries present a webinar on creating a literature review in the behavioral and social sciences.
