Lit Review Analysis
In writing your own literature review, it is helpful to analyze others.
Consider the following when reading someone else's thesis or dissertation literature review:
- How long is it?
- How is it structured?
- Is the structure and objective of the literature review described to the reader?
- What is the tone of the author? What verb tense does the author use?
