How do you structure a literature review?
A literature review should have a clear structure in order to present the information clearly and effectively. Generally, literature reviews are organized into four sections:
1. Introduction: Introduce the topic and provide an overview of the paper.
2. Summary of sources: Summarize the sources that are being reviewed.
3. Analysis and evaluation: Analyze and evaluate the sources for relevance, implications, and limitations.
4. Conclusion: Summarize the key points and make any suggestions for further research.
