How to write a literature review
Talbot, L., & Verrinder, G. (2008). Turn a Stack of Papers into a Literature Review: Useful Tools for Beginners. Focus on health professional education: a multi- disciplinary journal, 10(1), 51-58. http://search.lib.latrobe.edu.au/LATROBE:TN_informit_apaft311313404805036
Communicating evidence is an essential competency for all health professionals and literature reviews form part of this process; however, a succinct and coherent review does not automatically emerge after downloading a stack of papers. This paper provides an in-depth outline of techniques, including two simple conceptual diagrams, to assemble findings of a literature search that will be especially useful for health professionals. The grid and the funnel are visual concepts that assist students and health professionals new to the field to synthesise literature. Students find the visual concepts to be very useful in practice.
