By Cheryl Cooper Subscribe to RSS | February 6th 2012 | Views:

Literature review is an integral part of dissertation writing and so it becomes immensely important to focus more on literature review than any other part of the dissertation.

A dissertation is 9% rejected on the basis of badly written reviews, therefore, you must focus on the mistakes that are generally committed by the students out of which some are given below.

1- Failure to connect the researches with your current study:

At times, students are unable to connect the old gathered researchers with their study. This creates a very confusing impression on the supervisors. You should make sure that the research you are mentioning is relevant to the nature of study you are doing.

2- Over focus on secondary sources rather than primary ones:

Secondary sources are less reliable than the primary ones, so, you need to be more careful with that. Try to concentrate more on primary sources that are often neglected by the students.

3- Over critical about other author’s work:

Research writers often criticize the other researcher’s work too much that even the right thing is claimed to be wrong. This happens because the students want to make their research superior from them but instead it creates problems for them. Therefore, make sure your are not doing such thing.

4- Failure to find out which research is important:

Do you know which research go the most attention and which one was important, which one was neglected. That is natural since you were not there and have a little know-how of the subject. The best way to deal with this problem is to conduct a research on that particular research as well to gain knowledge about them. That way, you can find out which research was important and which one wasn’t.
