A literature review is a text of a scholarly paper, which includes the current knowledge including substantive findings, as well as theoretical and methodological contributions to a particular topic. Literature reviews are secondary sources, and do not report new or original experimental work.

  • The written collection and synthesis of research on a given topic
  • These are intended to distill information from published sources, capturing the essence of previous research or projects to inform the current project.
  • Strategies for organizing may be categorical, chronological, thematic, or methodological.
  • Internet resources have expedited searches but judgment is needed to ensure relevance and credibility of sources.
  • May include books, chapters, journal and magazine articles, theses and dissertations, corporate and academic websites and blogs, and past design projects.
  • The guiding factor in selecting literature should be relevance, clearly suggesting how it informed the design investigation.
  • Literature reviews should be accurately referenced using a consistent bibliographic style.
