What is a Literature Review?

The Purpose of a Literature Review is to gain an understanding of the existing research relevant to a particular topic or area of study and to present that knowledge in the form of a written report.  Learning important concepts, and research methods will bring insights into the topic chosen.  Ultimately, achieving a better understanding of a particular discipline and/or topic based upon the research findings.
