Enetics Literature Review Project: The Genetics of Autistic Savants
In a literature review paper, you are not collecting your own data; you are looking up current work in the area, presenting the work of others and synthesizing these concepts into a unified a?theorya? or discussion. It should NOT appear as a random set of works but works that you specifically choose because they are all inter-related. The review paper gives the following
1) Background of your subject (what is your topic and why is it important).
2) Current status of the discipline (this can include controversial issues).
3) Future direction (what is the goal or continued research).
