A General Outline for Your Literature Review I. Introduction: A. State your research question (e.g. Why do deer hunters like to hunt?) B. Why is this important? Offer some background information (e.g. In 1996, 10.7 million hunters went out a total of 131 million days to hunt deer, and big game hunters spent $9.7 million on their trips and equipment (Fish and Wildlife Service 1997).) II. Review of Literature: Your literature review should flow from topic to topic in an essay format. A. So, you should first discuss the general findings of previous research (e.g. Previous research has found that deer hunters enjoy hunting because they like being outdoors, being with friends and family, and they like the challenge of hunting and killing an animal that knows the woods better than they do). B. Then, discuss each topic separately by analyzing the findings of previous research. At the same time, this is a critical literature review, so you will need to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the studies you are citing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
