    « Back to Glossary Index

    Literature mapping is a systematic and comprehensive process of identifying and analyzing existing literature in a particular field of study.

    It involves mapping out the key concepts, theories, research methods, and empirical findings in a structured and visual format to identify gaps, trends, and research opportunities.

    Literature mapping lets you identify the scope and depth of existing knowledge, identify research gaps, and develop new research questions. It is a crucial part of any research project, particularly in fields where the literature is vast and complex.

    Literature mapping enables you to gain a holistic understanding of the current state of knowledge in their domain, and use it to develop robust research designs and methodologies.
