Literature Review Workshop

On 5th of April, Med Research Team held a workshop on Literature review principals.

Literature reviews are designed to provide an overview of sources you have explored while researching a particular topic and to demonstrate to your readers how your research fits within a larger field of study.

On the workshop, the lecturers focused on essential topics concerning Literature review covering topics such as:

  • Brief look to scientific research in general and reviews in particular
  • Introduction to scientific review: narrative and systematic
  • Methodology of conducting reviews
  • Misconceptions on literature review
  • Plagiarism in reviews
  • Search for articles: principals and tips
  • Practical example

The purpose of a literature review is to:

  • Place each work in the context of its contribution to understanding the research problem being studied.
  • Describe the relationship of each work to the others under consideration.
  • Identify new ways to interpret prior research.
  • Reveal any gaps that exist in the literature.
  • Resolve conflicts amongst seemingly contradictory previous studies.
  • Identify areas of prior scholarship to prevent duplication of effort.
  • Point the way in fulfilling a need for additional research.
  • Locate your own research within the context of existing literature
