How to Write a Literature Review?

Before you can edit, you need to have some text written. Unfortunately, most of us are never taught how to write academically, no matter how far we make it up the ladder of academia. So how do you best do it, and what are the steps to writing a good literature review? This is our suggested way of writing literature reviews:

  • Start by searching for relevant literature and identifying all your sources. Use your library’s resources, research journals in your field and online tools like Google Scholar. Evaluate these sources to ensure you pick out and read only the ones relevant to your topic.
  • Read your sources. They’re extremely important in a literature review. Take notes while you read and identify the themes, debates and gaps in the research that you could write about in your review.
  • Outline your review before you get started. Choose in what order to evaluate your sources and plan out the arguments you’re going to make beforehand. Make sure you also have an introduction and conclusion.
  • Write!
  • Edit your review thoroughly. This is probably going to take multiple rounds, and it’s an extremely important step. Of course, we recommend that you hire an academic editor to do this for you at some point in the editing process.

I would like to thank my editor at Capstone Editing for her thorough edit of my grant proposal. Her suggestions gave me better ways of expressing myself with clarity and (importantly for grant proposals) with fewer words! She provided detailed comments on her edits that helped ensure that we didn’t inadvertently change the intended meaning. I appreciated her attention to the details of formatting and nuances of meaning across the document. I highly recommend her to help improve the readability and clarity of academic documents.

Capstone Editing has edited many journal articles for me. Their editors' thorough command of language really helps in making sure that the article is well expressed and free of errors. They work very quickly and I have found it invaluable to have somebody format an article to the style of the particular journal. It is a massive time saver that allows me to move on to my next piece of work. I plan to use Capstone's services again, including for a book project I have coming up. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to academics wanting to save time and wanting to submit their work with the confidence that it has been thoroughly looked over and formatted to their particular requirements.

The fast, elegant and professional service provided by Capstone Editing saved me hours, days and weeks of work for which I am truly grateful. They worked to very tight deadlines and formatted, fixed and corrected my thesis so that I could submit it on time (and within my budget!) The editors who edited my thesis had phenomenal attention to detail and provided me with tremendously valuable feedback that improved the quality of my thesis. In addition to the usual material, my thesis had dozens of tables in both portrait and landscape format, a research study and case studies. My editors very quickly corrected and fixed all the material I threw at them and went beyond the call of duty to provide me with a beautifully referenced and immaculately formatted thesis. I am so appreciative of their advice and assistance.
