Writing an Outline for a Literature Review

The value of preparing the layout of their articles in advance is frequently overlooked by students. This is not a smart strategy.

Using a raw APA literature review outline (or other type outlines) would not only let you follow the proper layout, but will also ease the writing process and help ensure that without losing something, you have all the relevant material.

How to write an overview of a literature review: Every aspect of your literature review performs its own essential function, as you already know from the Structure portion of this document. Respectively, when bearing in mind the general introduction-body-conclusion framework and ensuring that each section achieves its own targets, you can build your outline.

It is important to note, though, that the outline of a literature review is somewhat different from the outlines of other types of essays because it does not contain new evidence. It draws on current research related to the key subject matter.
