Product Description

From daunting to doable in six steps 

The process of literature search and composing a formal literature review can be intimidating. But masters and doctoral candidates in Education and related fields have found academic argumentation to be seamlessly intuitive with the six-step process pioneered by this book. This updated third edition features a wealth of all-new content including:

  • A flowchart that graphically illustrates Machi and McEvoy’s process.
  • Reflective Oversight boxes in each chapter, prompting readers to direct metacognitive activities.
  • Links to online guides and resources. 
  • Expanded examples illustrating theoretical concepts.

Review

"The Literature Review clearly walks educators through the steps to completing a literature review with helpful checklists and graphic representations of the process. It makes a very daunting task much more manageable and systematic for those who are new to writing literature reviews or who are having trouble getting started and maintaining momentum." -- Andrea M. Capizzi

"The authors have provided a primer for planning, creating, developing, and researching literature reviews for new and experienced social scientists." -- Maureen K. Lienau

"The third edition of this text is the best guide yet for our dissertation students. The format provides the learner with the framework to think about each step of the literature review process. Candidates will find the graphs and charts most helpful as they conceptualize the process they will be using to think about their topic. This edition uses adult learning theory to keep the candidate focused on the best use of their time while organizing their review. This thorough and practical guide will provide candidates with the scholarly application that they require to think about their research." -- Barbara J. Poling, Interim Dean

The book provides a straightforward description of how to conduct a literature review. The advice the authors give is very reasonable. The problem is that the content of the book is at a suitable level for high school and undergraduate students. If you are a doctoral student, you will probably find it patronizing. I am disappointed to say I have learned next to nothing from it.

Because the book is advertised to graduate students, I cannot give it a high score. If you have no experience whatsoever with reasoning about bodies of literature, then you may find it somewhat instructive, however.

Full sections of missing text

Full sections of text missing.
Book is designed to be step by step guide to writing a literature review, but in place of the detailed exercises are greyed out boxes with no text. Big publishing fail / not useful in current condition.

I wish I had found this book earlier in my PhD program. It''s pretty basic (definitely would be useful in a masters or undergraduate thesis situation as well) but that was what I needed. I was able to read through it in about an afternoon, and it helped me to re-think my strategy for approaching the lit review on my dissertation. I will recommend this book to students coming into our program.

Most engaging in the current market
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2020
Good book and logically walks you through the process. Some parts are easier to comprehend the others, and some activities may be more interesting. However, I still found this book the most engaging and user-friendly in the market.

It summarizes and then methodically detsils each step and substep and provides tools to aid in application.

Reviewed in Mexico on September 1, 2017
Creo que le hace falta el lenguaje cercano a los estudiantes, para poder ser una guía de la delimitación de tema de investigación. Los cuadros y diagramas que emplea son muy útiles, pero me parecen repetitivos.
