3. Definition and Use/Purpose
1. Introduction
Not to be confused with a book review, a literature review surveys scholarly articles, books and other sources (e.g. dissertations, conference proceedings) relevant to a particular issue, area of research, or theory, providing a description, summary, and critical evaluation of each work. The purpose is to offer an overview of significant literature published on a topic. 2. Components Similar to primary research, development of the literature review requires four stages: Literature reviews should comprise the following elements:
  • An overview of the subject, issue or theory under consideration, along with the objectives of the literature review Division of works under review into categories (e.g. those in support of a particular position, those against, and those offering alternative theses entirely) Explanation of how each work is similar to and how it varies from the others Conclusions as to which pieces are best considered in their argument, are most convincing of their opinions, and make the greatest contribution to the understanding and development of their area of research

Although you might think of novels and poetry when you hear the word "literature," for a piece of research the meaning is more specific. In terms of a literature review, "the literature" means the works you consulted in order to understand and investigate your research problem. How useful are the following sources? journal articles books conference proceedings government and corporate reports ... magazines Journal articles : these are good especially for up-to-date information. Bear in mind, though, that it can take up to two years to publish articles. They are frequently used in literature reviews because they offer a relatively concise, up-to-date format for research, and because all reputable journals are refereed (i.e. editors publish only the most relevant and reliable research). Books : books tend to be less up-to-date as it takes longer for a book to be published than for a journal article. Text books are unlikely to be useful for including in your literature review as they are intended for teaching, not for research, but they do offer a good starting point from which to find more detailed sources.

Preparing Scholarly Reviews of the Literature: A Webtorial This web site will teach you how to use research literature from the social sciences in a scholarly and professional manner. It is intended for masters and doctoral degree students in all the social sciences, although particular emphasis is given to the fields addressed by The George Washington University's Graduate School of Education and Human Development. This site covers:
  • Searching for research literature efficiently, finding what you need quickly, finding the full text online when available, and avoiding an avalanche of irrelevant references. Hint Your favorite search engine will not find most of the scholarly literature! Assessing individual reports of research literature to determine whether their findings and conclusions should be relied upon or are likely to be misleading. Hint : Some of the research literature on almost every topic is misleading or trivial. Integrating the various studies on a topic to make the best assessments of what is known about the topic, to identify promising future research, to improve conceptual frameworks for research, and to determine the advantages and disadvantages of previously used methodologies. Hint : This isn't easy because the available studies usually exhibit apparent contradictions.

Information literacy in Europe: a literature review
Sirje Virkus

Manchester, U.K.
Abstract Examines the developments in information literacy in Europe and provides an overview of the concepts used and discussed by European authors. Some examples of information literacy initiatives in schools and the higher education sector, as well as of institutions and organizations, projects and conferences concerned with information literacy, are given. Some research initiatives are also introduced. The overview is based on literature reviews and personal observations and involvement and presents a selective review.
Bruce, a well-known Australian information literacy researcher, notes: The idea of information literacy, emerging with the advent of information technologies in the early 1970s, has grown, taken shape and strengthened to become recognized as the critical literacy for the twenty-first century. Sometimes interpreted as one of a number of literacies, information literacy is also described as the overarching literacy essential for twenty-first century living. Today, information literacy is inextricably associated with information practices and critical thinking in the information and communication technology environment' ( Bruce, 2002

Literature Reviews
Wynne Harlen and Ursula Schlapp, SCRE
In all areas of research, literature reviews are used to inform researchers of the background to research projects and to provide context and ideas for the design of new studies. Policy makers or prospective funders of research also use reviews of the literature to inform themselves of what existing research says in the fields of interest to them. This paper is mainly about reviews written for such purposes. It also looks at techniques developed for reviews which are regarded as research in their own right, which integrate findings of several related studies to answer research questions without collecting new data. In this paper we consider the role of the literature review in the research process, some possible approaches to reviewing the literature, and the main steps and decisions to be taken and justified along the way. We conclude with some suggestions for writing up the findings. THE ROLES OF LITERATURE REVIEWS
The various roles of reviews fall into two main categories:
  • guiding decisions about further research and providing a context for interpreting new findings
  • informing policy and practice, based on existing research.

How to Write a Literature Review
What this handout is about...
This handout will explain what a Literature Review is and offer insights into the form and construction of a Literature Review in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences.
OK. You've got to write a literature review. You dust off your world literature anthology book, settle down in your Ebert and Roper at the Movies theatre chair with your popcorn and soda in hand, and get ready to issue a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" as you leaf through the pages. "Literature Review" done. Right? Wrong! The "literature" of a literature review refers to any collection of materials on a topic, not necessarily the Great Literary Texts of the World. "Literature" could be anything from a set of government pamphlets on British colonial methods in Africa to scholarly articles on the treatment of a torn ACL. And a review does not necessarily mean that your reader wants you to give your personal opinion on whether or not you liked these sources. What is a literature review, then?

The Literature Review
What is a Literature Review? According to Cooper (1988) '... a literature review uses as its database reports of primary or original scholarship, and does not report new primary scholarship itself. The primary reports used in the literature may be verbal, but in the vast majority of cases reports are written documents. The types of scholarship may be empirical, theoretical, critical/analytic, or methodological in nature. Second a literature review seeks to describe, summarise, evaluate, clarify and/or integrate the content of primary reports.' The review of relevant literature is nearly always a standard chapter of a thesis or dissertation. The review forms an important chapter in a thesis where its purpose is to provide the background to and justification for the research undertaken (Bruce 1994) . Bruce, who has published widely on the topic of the literature review, has identified six elements of a literature review. These elements comprise a list; a search; a survey; a vehicle for learning; a research facilitator; and a report (Bruce 1994)

    These first publications in this new series offer a route map through the vast body of research into education and technology – a field that continues to grow in importance. They give a clear vision of where gaps in our understanding lie, where our knowledge base is weakest and future directions we need to follow to make best use of technology for learning.
    They have been commissioned from outstanding academic researchers who summarise the key research findings and highlight the most important questions that need to be addressed in learning with technologies. The reports provide jargon-free discussions of the key issues and are written for educators, policy makers and software designers with an interest in identifying the most effective role for ICT in learning. NEW Report 8 Literature Review in Games and Learning John Kirriemuir Ceangal Angela McFarlane Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol This review is intended as a timely introduction to current thinking about the role of computer games in supporting children’s learning inside and out of school. It highlights the key areas of research in the field, in particular the increasing interest in pleasurable learning, learning through doing and learning through collaboration, that games seem to offer. At the same time, the review takes a measured tone in acknowledging some of the obstacles and challenges to using games within our current education system and within our current models of learning. It goes on to propose some ways in which designers, researchers and educational policy makers might draw on the growing body of research in the field to create learning resources and environments that go beyond a sugar-coating of ‘fun’ to the full engagement that computer games seem to offer so many children today.

    Writing a Literature Review
    What is a literature review?
    A literature review is a description of the literature relevant to a particular field or topic. This is often written as part of a postgraduate thesis proposal, or at the commencement of a thesis. A critical literature review is a critical assessment of the relevant literature. It is unlikely that you will be able to write a truly critical assessment of the literature until you have a good grasp of the subject, usually at some point near the end of your thesis.
    How does a literature review differ from other assignments?
    The review, like other forms of expository writing, has an introduction, body and conclusion, well-formed paragraphs, and a logical structure. However, in other kinds of expository writing, you use relevant literature to support the discussion of your thesis; in a literature review, the literature itself is the subject of discussion.

    No Room of Her Own:
    A Literature Review on Women and Homelessness
    Introduction Discourse and Homelessness
    While the meanings most women attribute to home include various social and psychological dimensions beyond physical shelter, including personal safety and security, homeless women with histories of family disruption and abuse distinguish being housed from being safe, so that homelessness is a problem for women, but it is also a strategy for escaping violence. Taken as a form of discourse, much of the literature presents homeless people as victims or sick. Portrayals of homeless people as victims, rather than deviants or vagrants, have contributed to the politicization of homelessness as a social problem, but may risk denying their agency. Women and Homelessness
    Relations of class, gender, and race determine housing status and vulnerability to homelessness. Sex and racial discrimination contributes to the greater housing poverty of female-led and racial minority households. While there is some evidence that racial minority women are over-represented among the visible homeless, this is not the case for racial majority women. This may be due to methodological problems in part, but is also due to the strategies women use to disguise or avoid homelessness. There is some evidence that women's homelessness is more hidden than men's, but to what extent is not clear. The research on gender differences among homeless people is derived predominantly from shelter and street populations and may not reflect adequately women's experiences. According to research that is predominantly from the United States, homeless women are younger in age than homeless men; more likely to retain social connection; more likely to suffer from a mental illness; less likely to suffer from alcoholism; and much more likely to have dependent children, although the process of becoming homeless separates family members.
