Structure of a Literature Review

How to format a literature review: A literature review follows a traditional intro-body-conclusion style of 5 paragraphs total, like many other forms of scholarly prose. Now, let’s look in depth at each part of the framework of the basic literature review:


Start by introducing the general concept of your (Corruption, for example). Narrow the emphasis of your introduction into the MOP after the initial presentation by listing the parameters you used to choose the sources of literature you have picked. Finally, with the appearance of your MOP that can clearly connect it to all three literature references, the introduction will stop.


Usually, each segment of the body would concentrate on a single source of literature set out in the intro of the essay. Because each source has its own reference system for the MOP, it is important that the analysis is organized in the most logically coherent manner possible. This suggests that the text should be arranged either chronologically, thematically, or methodologically.


The next move is to present the meaning of the information in relation to our real environment today after discussing the information. In other words, how can the reader take the data and adapt it to the world of today? We’ll finish off with a breadcrumb trail from that stage.
