Tools and recommendations for structured literature review

On this page, we'd like to discuss ways to do an effective and successful literature review. I have some ideas what a literature review/search should consist of.

Literature search

Requirements for a literature review:

  • reproducibility: search term should clearly be defined, the search period and time/data should be noted.
  • coverage: the search should include as many publications on the topic as possible.
  • a defined and complete sorting system (i.e. a list of categories which covers all publications and is unequivocal)
