The Reviewing Research Literature programme at Coventry University supports writers who need to produce a substantial and rigorous literature review.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The skill of reviewing research literature and crafting a literature review underpins many types of research writing.

Through their literature reviews, writers demonstrate knowledge of their research area, position their work within existing debates, and justify the question/s on which their work hinges. Writers who are new to producing a lengthy piece of research often struggle to conduct and structure literature reviews effectively, which can impact negatively on the early stages of research projects.
