The literature review is defined by a guiding concept - your thesis or research question! It is not simply a list of summaries or the literature in your field. It serves several purposes:
Here are two ways to search for OSU theses and dissertations.
1. The library search engine, 1Search. One of the best ways to get started is to read a completed thesis or dissertation from your department.
2. ScholarsArchive@OSU: Electronic Theses and Disserations and then filter by academic affiliation, degree, etc.
Each department has its own unique expectations for the literature review. Make sure you're on the right track by doing some background work.
- In a thesis or dissertation only
- In a journal article
- In a grant proposal
