Literature Reviews

Check the Literature Review

When reviewing your literature review, ask yourself these important questions:
 
Am I analyzing the literature or describing it?
Have I missed an important part of the argument or literature?
Is the material presented in the most effective order?
Is each step in my argument supported effectively?
Are all elements in my review linked effectively?
Have I clearly shown the relevance of each piece of evidence?
Is there any material that does not contribute to my argument?
