What is a review of related literature in an investigatory project?
Our topic is about sugar apple as an insect repellent.
How do you make a review of related literature about this?
Answer by Bob B
A literature review is basically a summary of any relevant material on the subject that has already been published. For instance, you might want to include published papers/books on insect repellents, sugar apple, and so forth.
Your literature review should contain enough material such that another scientist who reads it will understand:
* The relevant principles and issues involved in the area you’re investigating.
* What the scientific community already knows about the subject of the investigation.
