It’s important that we have a clear idea of our topic. What’s your study about? What are the keywords that you might use in order to find related literature review?

  • To know what has been known or unknown/researched in order to identify the research gap.
  • To uncover a research problem for further study (Advanced LR)
  • To question the current state of knowledge about a topic in order to define an area for new research.
