Literature Review Step By Step Guide
This guide is intended to introduce basic concepts related to preparing a literature review in the fields of information systems, information security, and computer science.
Research requires time, patience, creativity, and problem-solving.
Conducting a literature review is a means of demonstrating the author’s knowledge about a particular field of study, including vocabulary, theories, key variables and phenomena, and its methods and history.
Conducting a literature review also informs the student of the influential researchers and research groups in the field (Randolph, 2009).
While a summary of the what you have read is contained within the literature review, it goes well beyond merely summarizing professional literature.
