Writing An Effective Literature Review

Venue : UOW Malaysia University College
Date : 24 February 2023
Time : 8.30am to 10.00am
Event Organizer : School Of Engineering, UOW Malaysia University College

The literature review is a key part of research work in identifying the potential problems in the given area of work that require further research to determine the methods to resolve them. In fact, the primary intent of the literature review remains to convey the broadness of knowledge and ideas being established on a topic as well as their strength and weakness. Therefore, preparing/writing the literature review becomes a vital part of the research, yet it is also one of the areas that is often challenging.
