Literature search and review
A literature search is a systematic search for information on a particular topic. It depends on the level you are at, the time you have and the size of project as to how comprehensive a literature search you conduct. After you have carried out your search you can conduct a literature review which is a critical analysis of the existing literature on your topic.
