Literature reviews are a crucial part of all research. Finding and reviewing the right material is especially critical to the success of higher degree research candidates. But how do you identify the most credible articles out of the immensely crowded field of research publishing?

Try using Annual Reviews.

Annual Reviews reprint and comment on the most influential articles published on a given topic during a particular year, helping you identify the right material for your literature review or annotated bibliography. Each article reviewed provides a pathway to the referenced primary research enabling quick and easy access to key sources for further research.

The articles in each field are chosen by a committee of distinguished scholars in the discipline and are used for significantly longer periods than most primary research literature, which demonstrates that they are the most impactful articles for your research.
