What is a literature review?
A literature review is an integrated analysis-- not just a summary-- of scholarly writings that are related directly to your research question. That is, it represents the literature that provides background information on your topic and shows a correspondence between those writings and your research question.
A literature review may be a stand alone work or the introduction to a larger research paper, depending on the assignment. Rely heavily on the guidelines your instructor has given you.
What is an annotated bibliography?
A bibliography is a list of citations to books, journal articles, and other works.
An annotated bibliographyis a list of citations to books, journal articles, and other works accompanied by descriptive and/or critical paragraph length summaries.
