Writing the literature review book cover

Writing the literature review

CC BY (Attribution)   English

Author(s): Robert Lloyd, Daniel Mertens, Matthew Vollrath

Last updated: 01/06/2023

The purpose of this book is to help you write your next literature review. This is true whether you are crafting one for an undergraduate midterm paper, a doctoral dissertation, or working on your first manuscript for a peer review publication. For years, as professors we have read the best and worst of what students have written in our classes. We have witnessed in a handful of instances, undergraduate writers write more masterfully than doctoral students. We have witnessed doctoral students write first year papers which were ready for publication. And of course, the opposite is true. This begs, the question - what makes a student a good writing. Our hope is to answer that question in our textbook designed for you the student. Good writing comes down to practice, but having a guiding framework will be helpful as you begin your next paper. This book serves as a guide for how literature reviews are written in upper-level business courses, but the core advice and direction applies to most other disciplines.
