What is literature review?In research methodology, the term ‘literature’ refers to the knowledge of a particular area of investigation of any discipline which includes theoretical, practical and its research studies.The term ‘review’ means to organize the knowledge of the specific area of research to evolve an association of knowledge to show that this study would be an addition to this field.The task of review of literature is highly creative and tedious because the researcher has to synthesize the available knowledge of the field in a unique way to provide the rationalefor his study.4Faculty of Computing | BiT | Bahir Dar University

Literature Review DefinedFerfolja and Burnett defined a literature review as “an examination of the research that has been conducted in a particular field of study”(p. 1). Hart (2003) agrees with this notion but expanded its definition to “the selection of available documents… and the effective evaluation of these documents in relation to the research being proposed” (p. 13).5Faculty of Computing | BiT | Bahir Dar University

Phases of LRReviewing literature has two phases. 1.The first phase includes identifying all the relevant published material in the problem area and reading that part of it with which we are not thoroughly familiar. We develop the foundation of ideas and results on which our own study will be built. 2.The second phase of the review of literature involves writing this foundation of ideas into a section of the research report. This section is for the joint benefit of the researchers and readers. For the researcher, it establishes the background in the field. For the readers it provides a summary of the thinking and research necessary for them to understand the study.6Faculty of Computing | BiT | Bahir Dar University
