S5 Ep4 Literature Reviews

Everyone has heard the term 'literature review' or 'reviewed literature' or perhaps you've been told to 'read the literature on the matter.' Well, not all these things are the same and trying to figure out what a 'literature review' is can be complicated.

Niklas and Clay break down the various different types of literature reviews, and the different reasons to review literature. Knowing how to effective use literature you have reviewed and when you are writing a literature review will not only reduce confusion, but will help you to identify when reading the differences reviewed literature and literature reviews. Both are valuable for us as researchers, but not all reviewed literature is a literature review, and not all literature reviews are the same either.
