What are the parts of an article/literature review?

Most article/literature reviews use a basic introduction-body-conclusion structure; if your lit review is part of a larger paper, the introduction, and conclusion pieces maybe just a few sentences while you focus most of your attention on the body. If your article/literature review is a standalone piece, the introduction and conclusion take up more space and give you a place to discuss your goals, research methods, and conclusions separately from where you discuss the literature itself.

Abstract:

Your abstract will be based on the author’s information at the beginning of the article.

Introduction:

An introductory paragraph that explains what your working topic and thesis is a forecast of key topics or texts that will appear in the review. Potentially, a description of how you found sources and how you analyzed them for inclusion and discussion in the review (more often found in published, standalone literature reviews than in article/literature review sections in an article or research paper)

Body:

  • Summarize and synthesize: Give an overview of the main points of each source and combine them into a coherent whole
  • Analyze and interpret: Don’t just paraphrase other researchers – add your own interpretations where possible, discussing the significance of findings in relation to the literature as a whole
  • Critically Evaluate: Mention the strengths and weaknesses of your sources
  • Write in well-structured paragraphs: Use transition words and topic sentences to draw connections, comparisons, and contrasts.

Conclusion:

  • Summarize the key findings you have taken from the literature and emphasize their significance
  • Connect the topic with the class discussions
  • How this topic is related to the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAPs)**
  • Connect it back to your primary research question

** This information is in your syllabus from pages 10-12
