What is a literature review?
A literature review is similar to an annotated bibliography, but more formal, analytical, and narrative. They are often required in for theses and published papers to provide an overview of sources/authors you have researched to demonstrate how your research fits within a larger academic conversation. Depending on the discipline, a literature review might also be called a systematic review, argumentative review, meta-analysis, or a methodological review.
