This subject covers the theory and skills involved in developing a literature review in social work at the doctoral level. It requires students to be thoroughly conversant with the literature of the subject they intend to study, and to understand the major theories, methodological assumptions, key concepts, data-collection techniques, issues, problems, areas of neglect, and newly acquired knowledge within their selected and related disciplines. The literature review provides a rationale for research and a justification of its value and significance for the professional practice of social work.
