Default Writing Literature Review



HI aLL,

I know there is a bunch of scientists and almost everyone must have/in the process or will write literature review for their thesis.
I would like to invite all to share their experiences and the proper method/procedure/protocol for writing literature review of PhD level thesis.
Based on these responses, i will plan my literature reveiw chapter. I am sure you all will contribute and will help me.

Thanx

A series of paragraphs of the kind:

"Green (1975) discovered .";
"In 1978, Black conducted experiments and discovered that .";
"Later Brown (1980) illustrated this in ";

demonstrates neither your understanding of the literature nor your ability to evaluate other people's work.

Maybe at an earlier stage, or in your first version of your literature review, you needed a summary of who did what. But in your final version, you have to show that you've thought about it, can synthesise the work and can succinctly pass judgement on the relative merits of research conducted in your field. So, to take the above example, it would be better to say something like:

"There seems to be general agreement on x, (for example, White 1987, Brown 1980, Black 1978, Green 1975) but Green (1975) sees x as a consequence of y, while Black(1978) puts x and y as . While Green's work has some limitations in that it ., its main value lies in ."
