That article on the importance of literature review should be required reading in every classroom, seminar or workshop where research writing is required. I hope it becomes a classic. For those of us who do research and who may “already know” what’s in the article, we cannot take it for granted that all researchers already know that. Again, great article.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
