b. a literature review
A “literature review” reviews the scholarly literature on a specific topic by summarizing and analyzing published work on that topic. A literature review has several purposes:
Green, Johnson and Adams describe a literature review as a type of research article published in a professional peer-reviewed journal.
The purpose of a literature review is to objectively report the current knowledge on a topic and base this summary on previously published research. A literature review provides the reader with a comprehensive overview and helps place that information into perspective.
In contrast to research papers, conference presentations and research proposals, a review paper is a journal article that synthesizes work by many independent researchers on a particular subject or scientific problem.
a review paper serves as a valuable summary of research.
