Finding Published Literature Reviews
As noted previously, published books, articles, and reports will include literature reviews. Dissertations will also contain a literature review section.
There are also special issues of journals that are literature reviews, as well as series specializing in literature reviews (ex. Annual Reviews Online).
You can use our databases to find published literature reviews by using the phrases:
- "Literature Review"
- "Review of Literature"
- "Review of the literature"
Some databases, including PAIS, also have a function allowing you to only look for literature reviews.
