The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the many resources available to you during the process of performing a literature review as a research method. Not every research discipline has developed specific guidelines for the various steps in a literature review. However, there is a growing consensus around what essential steps should be included. This guide aims to support researchers from all disciplines, even if examples may be taken from the subject areas with well-established guidelines.
If you are a JU researcher or doctoral student, you can also book a meeting with the library team for research support for more information about how we can support you in your research project.
