Students will provide a literature review at a high level on a self chosen topic. The
report will present a showcase skills covered in class lectures with a minimum of 1500
words. The report should be based on a minimum of 3 peer reviewed papers from
the chosen research field. A full bibliography and correct citations are also required.
To construct your literature review you can use guidelines from the lecture notes and
power-point slides to find papers and journals relevant to your chosen topic. Lists of web
resources are included in the lecture notes. Your are not required to check your topic
with the tutor but it is highly recommended.
2.1 Report format and technical guidelines
For your Written report 1, you will use the LiteratureReview.tex template found in
the LaTeX template.zip on the vuws site.
2.2 Working with MikTex compiler
To setup LaTeX and run the LaTeX template on your computer:
1. Download and unzip the LaTeX template.zip file (Tutorials section on vUWS)
1
2. install LaTeX system using links and instructions given in tutorial notes (Latex
installation)
3. open LiteratureReview.tex in your LaTeX editor
4. put your references into the .bib file (create your own or use bibtexexample.bib
file)
5. Write your literature review in the .tex file, remember to use cite or citep
and not to ‘hardcode‘ references
6. when compiling, run pdfLaTex, then BibTeX, then 2×pdfLaTex again to produce
the final pdf
2.2.1 Compiling/Typesetting
Be sure that, after adding a new reference, typeset your document four times:
pdfLaTeX ! BibTeX ! pdfLaTeX ! pdfLaTeX
Your bibliography will now appear in the style of your choice and your citations will be
correctly formatted. If question marks appear where citations should, that means you
need to LaTeX your document once more. If the citations are entirely missing, you have
likely forgotten to BibTeX your document.

1. open account on the Overleaf (it’s free)
2. Download and unzip the LaTeX template.zip file (Tutorials section on vUWS)
3. open new project (“New Project” button)
4. upload 4 files from the template folder (head.sty, LiteratureReview.tex,wsulogo.jpg
and bibtexexamples.bib)
5. delete “main.tex” file and set LiteratureReview.tex as the Main Document (“Menu”
button)
6. open LiteratureReview.tex

minimum length of 1500 words. It should start with introduction of the topic including
the main question/problem which you are trying to review, and finish with conclusion

disagreements) with the presented findings.
