What is a literature review? A literature review is a document or section of a document that collects key sources on a topic and discusses those sources in conversation with each other (also called synthesis).
The literature review is an important genre in many disciplines, not just literature (i.e., the study of works of literature such as novels and plays). When we say “literature review” or refer to “the literature,” we are talking about the research (scholarship) in a given field. You will often see the terms “the research,” “the scholarship,” and “the literature” used mostly interchangeably.--Purdue Online Writing Lab
