As you prepare to write your own review, it is a good idea to look at examples from your disciplinary area (humanities, social sciences, or natural or applied sciences). Here are some sample literature reviews taken from the introductory section of articles from different fields. The last article on the list is a systematic review article, that is, an article that does not present the results of a new study but rather discusses the results of the existing studies that have been published on its chosen topic.
At the end of each citation is a link to the full text of the article.
See below for screen captures of some aspects of each article's style. To compare these with articles by UO authors, please visit UO Scholars' Bank.
These screen captures from the articles listed above show some aspects of style from each article. Click the links in the box above to view the rest of the articles. In-text citations are highlighted because citation style is an important aspect of overall style.
