Literature Study


Find contextual information, guidance and best practices.


Make a 'search plan'; identify relevant keywords. Find and judge your sources. Be sure to determine the relevance and reliability of a source by examining the publication date, the author's background and whether the author has a commercial interest. Look at the sources of the book or article you found. Within the selected sources, trace references that are interesting, and repeat the search process with keywords you found in the selected texts.
