Chapter 2:literature review

Chapter Two Literature Review The purpose of this chapter is to review and critically analyse the academic literature pertinent to the project topic, project objectives, research question(s) etc – this chapter also provides material to be used in the data collection stage. To do this successfully the student should:  Ensure the reviewed literature is relevant by using the research objectives/research questions as sub-headings, at least in the draft stage.  Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the academic debates relevant to their topic.  Critically analyse key contributions, testing their internal consistency, and acknowledging and presenting the inevitable counter-arguments.  Avoid presenting literature uncritically – this does not demonstrate understanding.  Avoid presenting only the positive side of an argument, as a researcher he/she must acknowledge and evaluate the negative aspects of their chosen topic.  Summarise the chapter and introduce the next chapter.
