Getting Started: Reviewing the Literature  

This chapter details how to write a literature review after a researcher has established their research questions. It explains how a literature review provides the basis for an empirical study involving primary or secondary data collection using quantitative or qualitative methods. While the systematic review is designed as a more reliable method of presenting literature searching and review, the narrative review is an alternative approach with the advantage of flexibility. Referencing, which refers to providing publication details of the research, is a key part of all literature reviewing. The chapter also highlights the importance of understanding what constitutes plagiarism and its associated penalties.
