Literature review is one of the pillars on which your research idea stands since it provides context, relevance, and background to the research problem you are exploring. Yet, many researchers struggle when it comes to writing a literature review for their research paper. A thorough understanding of your area of research is vital, and this is where a comprehensive literature review comes in to understand what has and has not been done in your research field.
