Abstract

Exploring and evaluating findings from previous research is an essential aspect of
all research projects enabling the work to be set in the context of what is known
and what is not known. This necessitates a critical review of the literature in which
existing research is discussed and evaluated, thereby contextualising and
justifying the project. In this research note we consider what is understood by
being critical when reviewing prior to outlining the key attributes of a critical
literature review. We conclude with a summary checklist to help ensure a
literature review is critical.
