Literature Searching & Reviewing - Nursing and Midwifery - LibGuides at Edinburgh Napier University

Why do we do it? Following retrieval of all pertinent research papers from your literature search, critical appraisal will identify the strengths and weaknesses of what you have found. Authors may exaggerate their findings or there may be methodological flaws in the research. Critical appraisal lets you make informed decisions about the quality of the research evidence. Critical appraisal is often carried out using checklists that help signpost areas to look for while reading a paper.

The Literature Review: A Few Tips On Conducting It

A literature review is an account of what has been published on a topic by accredited scholars and researchers. Occasionally you will be asked to write one as a separate assignment (sometimes in the form of an annotated bibliography—see the bottom of the next page), but more often it is part of the introduction to an essay, research report, or thesis. In writing the literature review, your purpose is to convey to your reader what knowledge and ideas have been established on a topic, and what their strengths and weaknesses are.

Writing in the Health Sciences: a comprehensive guide

A “review of the literature” is a classification and evaluation of what accredited scholars and researchers have written on a topic. Occasionally you will be asked to write one as a separate assignment, but often it is part of the introduction to an essay, research report, or thesis. In writing the literature review, your purpose is to convey to your reader what knowledge and ideas have been established on a topic, and what their strengths and weaknesses are. As a piece of writing, the literature review must be defined by a guiding concept (e.g., your research objective, the problem or issue you are exploring, or your thesis).
