The best literature reviews are not individual summaries of articles; rather, they are a
combined synthesis. In scholarly writing, to synthesize means to bring various ideas and
pieces of information together. In this “bringing together,” new comparisons are drawn
and new meanings derived. So, even though you are reporting on information in four
different articles, you are also molding that information into a new and unique story you
are telling about the research topic.

For a visual, you might think about each piece of information within a theme as a strand
of yarn or rope. You weave those strands together, put them against each other, twist
them, and eventually you come up with a beautiful shape. In the literature review, this
“weaving” looks like comparing, contrasting, and analyzing the articles in relationship to
one another and the social work profession.

In this Assignment, you write a short literature review on your research topic, keeping
the principle of synthesis in mind.
