Introduction
  • Literature review Listing different studies
    related to your work. Thats it? No! Students
    often treat writing the literature review in a
    dissertation as a formality. It is, not only
    listing of what research has been done in the
    past on your topic but it also evaluates,
    summarizes, relates and contrasts, several
    scholarly research articles, books, and other
    related sources to your current research. I'd
    pause for a minute to go over what a literature
    review ought to do and why you should give it the
    thought it deserves. While there may be numerous
    purposes behind conducting a literature review,
    the following are few perspectives of doing the
    survey.

4
Analysis Of Current Research On A Topic
  • It is the most evident purpose of conducting a
    literature review. After deciding a territory to
    work with, assessment of relevant data sources
    will help figure out what is known about the
    subject and how widely the topic has just been
    looked into. In some ways, your English degree
    program will have given you considerable thoughts
    about English dissertation ideas. But imagine the
    situation. You have composed your paper, a novel
    paper in your area of specialization but without
    a literature review. The moment before your
    publication. You discover that somebody has
    previously published an article on a topic as
    same as yours. Obviously, you have not copied
    that publication but, still, people will be
    skeptical of your authenticity. They will
    question your contribution to similar research.
    By knowing this fact, you can tweak or tailor
    your research, identify gaps with the help of
    these tools, and justify your research question.

One Track Mind
  • As you gather outside sources, you will
    consolidate, assess, incorporate, and reword the
    substance of external sources in your very own
    words. Through this procedure of winnowing, you
    will probably put the significance of your
    dissertation in the bigger setting of what other
    analysts have officially done on your subject
    previously. Maybe you are utilizing another or
    diverse research technique which has not been
    accessible already. It will enable you to gather
    the information all the more precisely. Thus, it
    will hone your research focus. For this, you
    should thank increasing advancements of current
    innovation.

Improvement Of Methodology
  • Exploring literature before starting the
    dissertation additionally gives you a chance to
    perceive how comparative investigations have been
    led previously. By a similar token, a review of
    recently directed research may help you deciding
    another plot for moving toward research. You
    would thus be able to ensure the most appropriate
    strategies, information sources, and analytical
    procedures for your very own work.

Justify Your Research
  • Being a student, you might not be proficient in
    your field. But, by conducting an extensive
    literature review, you are telling the crowd that
    you understand what you are discussing.
    Accordingly, the more articles, books, and
    different sources you can list in your literature
    chapter, the more reliable your grant and ability
    will be. A literature review cheers you to
    generate a sense of bond with your audience. So,
    they can recognize you for your due
    determination that you have done your
    fact-finding and fact-checking mission.
