According to the APA manual (p. 10),
“Literature reviews are critical evaluations of material that has already been published. By organizing, integrating,and evaluating previously published material, authors of literature reviews consider the progress of research toward clarifying a problem. In a sense, literature reviews are tutorials, in that authors
define and clarify the problem;
summarize previous investigations to inform the reader of the state of research;
identify relations, contradictions, gaps, and inconsistencies in the literature; and
suggest the next step or steps in solving the problem.”
Be sure to use APA style, including appropriate grammar, spelling, and mechanics, as well as citations and references.
