It will cover the primary principles of literature reviews, including: 

  • What is the purpose of a literature review?
  • Where does the literature review go in a dissertation?
  • How to process information to facilitate writing.
  • How to structure and write a literature review.

This workshop is suitable for those who will be or addressing a dissertation at the undergraduate or postgraduate level.
