Draft 1.1: Literature Review

Objective: To demonstrate your ability to analyze and synthesize research on a given topic and format that information into a literature review.

Description: Now that you developed an understanding of synthesis and begun finding sources, you will write a literature review over one of the following:

  • A global issue. While this may be an issue that impacts the U.S., the issue itself must originate outside of the U.S.
  • An issue connected to your major or minor field of study. You may wish to look at a global issue connected to your discipline.
  • Another topic approved by your instructor

Remember, your literature review must do more than just summarize the information. A literature review discusses previously published information about a particular topic or issue in order to accomplish one or more of the following tasks:

  1. show readers what has been written about a topic, so that they can understand a particular development of ideas concerning that topic
  2. explain to readers why certain ideas or theories concerning a topic are being challenged or reexamined by researchers.
  3. help readers understand more about why a topic is being examined by a researcher in a particular way

Remember that many academic papers use the information presented in the literature review as the basis for making an argument or presenting results of research. It’s important to understand that a literature review is not the same thing as an academic research paper. A research paper supports your own argument or position about a topic; a literature review is written to summarize and synthesize other people’s ideas and perspectives about a topic. A free-standing literature review, which is what you are writing here, has a thesis statement. However, remember that the focus of that thesis statement is on the sources. A thesis statement for a literature review must have as its subject the literature. For example, an appropriate statement for a literature review on tax code reform might be as follows: “Although, historically, some economists have discouraged a flat tax, a large number of recent publications are making the case that such a strategy is a beneficial option.” Your review will discuss at least eight sources, all of which must be located via the TTU library databases and online catalog. Your sources should be scholarly or other reputable or credible articles.
