Literature Reviews

So in my continuing quest to better understand the literature review process, I’ve been reading Critical Reading and Writing for Postgraduates by Wallace and Wray (2006).

I’m not going to do a review, but suffice to say it’s a good book. It’s actually pretty complex, and delivers more than the title might promise. I’m still working through it, but I can really recommend it. It also comes with some good free access handouts – have a look at the publisher’s webpage.

In particular, have a look at the Critical Analysis template and the Critical Synopsis template. They’re word docs with ideas to think over when you’re reading, and the analysis template is very in depth.
