Writing a Literature Review for PG Students
- Library, Edinburgh Campus
What is a literature review and how do I write one?
This session is designed for postgraduate students.
A literature review is a justification for doing research and for doing it in a particular way. Participants will explore the purpose of literature reviews in their field, the degree of criticality expected and the relationship to the rest of the dissertation/thesis or paper. They will also consider features such as finding a voice and taking a stance towards the literature under review.
