What is a literature review & an annotated bibliography?

A literature review is an assessment and critical analysis of the literature (what has been published) on a particular topic.

An annotated bibliography provides:

  • A reference list with a summary of the main arguments or idea of each source
  • A critique or evaluation of the source’s usefulness, reliability, objectivity or bias 
  • A reflection on how the source fits into your research

Both provide a critical review of the literature.
