Information Skills : Chapter Two, Obtaining Literature
Once you obtain literature and begin to categorise it the first step to researching becomes a lot easier. In the book I came across a set three categories that were recommended in order to structure your review.
Here are the categories as follows:
- Broad Paradigms – This means structuring your essay from the top down to the bottom or this can also be in reverse.
- Research Paradigms – Starting on the very same point as your research and then grouping certain topics together.
- Natural Divisions – Using factors that are external or internal using keywords in the categorising process.
