This dynamic seven-step guide to doing literature reviews focuses on published and unpublished works and then extends the search to include multimodal texts and settings such as media, observations, documents, experts in the field and secondary data through the idea that culture plays a central role in knowledge interpretation. The seven steps help demystify the literature review process and encourage readers to synthesize information thematically, rather than merely summarize the existing literature and findings. The book outlines the CORE of the literature review process - Critical thinking, Organization, Reflections and Evaluation - and provides a guide for reflexivity at the end of each of the seven steps. The literature review exemplar in the appendix serves as a helpful model for readers.
