Review of Literature
Due: Seminar, week 4 (Hard copy)
Students must write a review of the current literature surrounding the study of one of the following areas:
1. Review the evidence for psychological and aptitude testing in the recruitment process.
2. Review the evidence for a Soft versus Hard approach to personnel management in the corporate setting.
3. Review the literature on the use of Positive Psychology in HRM.
A literature review summarises, interprets, and critically evaluates existing "literature" (or published
material) in order to establish current knowledge of a subject.
A literature review is an aspect of formal academic writing so include:
• Introduction
• Body
• Conclusion
In the Introduction define or identify the general topic, issue, or area of concern, thus providing an appropriate context for reviewing the literature.
Point out overall trends in what has been published about the topic; or conflicts in theory,
methodology, evidence, and conclusions; or gaps in research and scholarship; or a single
problem or new perspective of immediate interest.
Establish the writer’s reason (pointof view) for reviewing the literature; explain the criteria
to be used in analysing and comparing literature and the organisation of the review
(sequence); and, when necessary, state why certain literature is or is not included (scope).
In the Body group research studies and other types of literature (reviews, theoretical articles, case
studies, etc.) according to common denominators such as qualitative versus quantitative
approaches, conclusions of authors, specific purpose or objective, chronology, etc.
Summarise individual studies or articles with as much or as little detail as each merits
according to its comparative importance in the literature, remembering that space (length)
denotes significance.
In the Conclusion summarise major contributions of significant studies and
articles to the body of knowledge under review, maintaining the focus established in the introduction.
Evaluate the current "state of the art" for the body of knowledge reviewed, pointing out
major methodological flaws or gaps in research, inconsistencies in theory and findings, and
areas or issues pertinent to future study.
Conclude by providing some insight into the relationship between the central topic of the
literature review and a larger area of study such as a discipline, a scientific endeavour, or a
