Writing Literature Reviews in the Natural Sciences with Larissa Sano

March 18, 2019, 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm EDT

A literature review is a foundational component of the dissertation that provides important context for one’s research and writing. It is also a challenging organizational project. In this workshop, we will explore the purpose and conventions of literature reviews in the natural sciences. The workshop will include a discussion of the genre of literature reviews, why they are important, and how they can be organized. Our ultimate goal will be to equip graduate students with both an understanding of different approaches to literature reviews as well as strategies for summarizing the literature and organizing content.
