      Writing your literature review or thesis

      A literature review traditionally provides an historical overview of the theory and the research literature, with a special emphasis on the literature specific to the thesis topic.

      A thesis is a lengthy research work written to prove a theory or proposition.

      Any author-date (Harvard) system for citations is acceptable as long as it is applied consistently.
