      Finding review articles

      Review articles describe, analyse, summarise and evaluate published research within a subject area. This type of article can be found in both books and scientific journals.

      Research overviews

      Review articles do not report the results of individual studies. They describe, analyse, summarise and evaluate published research within a limited subject area. Review articles provide a good overview of research within a subject area.

      They are a useful way of finding references to original articles (empirical studies). In contrast to review articles, original articles report the results of new research for the first time.

      Review articles can be found in scientific journals, as well as in reports and certain types of books.

      Review articles in books

      Review articles can be found in books with titles such as:

      • Annual review of...
      • Handbook of...
      • Research in...

      You can search for books in LibSearch.
