Product description

Review

'Tasks, tips, examples, figures and summaries in each chapter give the book a "self-guided" feel appropriate in a textbook, and the language is rarely arcane. Four useful appendices and a fine index complete the work. Overall, this is a sound guide for the absolute neophyte in how to create useable literature reviews. Part 2 is especially recommended as a good discussion of the ways and means of writing reviews. The work is useful for students at most levels, and for those who teach research methods and want a clear guide for literature reviews for their reading lists' -
G. E. Gorman
Online Information Review


'The main strength lies in the book's practical nature. The authors place great emphasis on the importance of proper searching techniques and encourage the use of specialist librarians. Chapters on reading and note-taking skills contain useful detail often missing from similar books - such as which bits of an article to read first, and how to make and store relevant notes that will be usable later. The examples of how to improve specific passages of writing are very valuable.' (Jenni Brooks 2013-10-30)

The book does what it promises: it is an accessible and practical book, which many researchers can benefit from to improve their literature reviews. (Willemijn Krebbekx, Universiteit van Amsterdam)

About the Author

Jill Jesson entered higher education as a mature student. She won a First Class Honours BSc in Behavioural Science, and in 1988 was awarded her PhD for a pioneering doctoral thesis on black businesses, both from Aston University. Since then she has worked with multi-disciplinary research teams within the Aston School of Pharmacy, Aston Business School and with M-E-L Research, an independent public services research consultancy. Her publications cover community pharmacy practice, public health and social care. Her special interest in literature review and the idea for this book developed as a result of teaching applied research to pharmacy undergraduates and Business School Masters students.

Format: Paperback
This book is a comprehensive and clear account of how to conduct traditional and systematic literature reviews. It is a first-rate introduction for postgraduates and contains practical guidance for everything from searching techniques and note-taking to synthesis and meta-analysis. It is well written and easy to navigate, and makes a potentially baffling process feel very manageable.

It must be difficult to write such a book - targeting undergraduate to doctoral level students and many different disciplines. The authors do an alright job at it; taking you step by step through the process of searching for information and writing up the review with a clear and focussed research question in mind. I'm a doctoral student and still learnt a few new things from the book. However, I am only giving it three stars because it doesn't do a awfully good job at telling you how to prioritise literature (basically the advice is to read everything that's relevant three times- not joking!) and because some of the examples they give rely on you looking up articles yourself, which I think is a bit much to expect, particularly from people like me who do most of their reading on the train etc where there isn't always internet to hand. But other than that, a useful resource.

Format: Paperback
I am writing my undergraduate dissertation in the format of a library based project/ literature review. My supervisor recommended this publisher and the newest book they have available.

This book was in my library but was recalled very quickly, after skimming through it quickly, I decided £15 was not a high price to pay for such a good product.

Well used and will be very well worn by the end of this project.
Love it, goes with me everywhere.
Nice to read as a "cover-to-cover" book as well as a "select-a-chapter" book.
