Developing your Research Question and Literature Review

Register for session (Zoom):

Part of the Graduate Student Research Series


Literature reviews (also called narrative reviews) are found in various formats in academic writing. They can be stand-alone articles, a chapter in a thesis/dissertation, or a capstone project. This session will cover how to create a research question and why it's so important to the literature review. Topic selection, developing the search, keeping track of references, and structuring the literature review will also be discussed.

In this session, participants will:

- Understand the five steps to developing a literature review

- Learn about question frameworks and how they can be applied

- Identify the key concepts in their review to develop a search strategy
