THE LITERATURE REVIEW OF YOUR THESIS: A REVIEW AND APPROACH

Introduction
What most people do not understand about the output of a literature review leads them to the presentation of non-concurrent and poor articulation of facts, concepts and perspectives from what pertains to their research area. Literature review is supposed to reveal the cogent issues of theory and practice to the subject matter of ones research.Thus discussions must be founded on issues that are connected coherently to the research topic, problem statement and research questions or objectives.
In most cases, if one picks a discussion (write-up) on the issues presented as part of the literature review for a thesis, I should be able to appreciate the issues of on the subject matter from a theoretical, conceptual and practical perspective and from an international to a local perspective? This paper provides a resource base as to the whats and hows of a literature review.
