5.2 Searching for literature

A literature search involves a systematic, thorough search of all types of literature (e.g. books, peer-reviewed articles, etc.) in your area of interest. Literature searching can be broken down into a series of iterative stages. You may want to revisit some of these stages several times throughout your search.
