The value and diversity of literature reviews

The growth of research literature is exponential. It is not only challenging to keep abreast of new literature – also working out what portions of it provide the most in depth avenues for understanding the world, as part of intervening for positive change. For these reasons it is vital for students, educators, health practitioners and researchers to utilise and conduct literature reviews. Yet, there are rapid rises even in the number of reviews and types of reviews. With these matters in mind, this talk will summarise the value of literature reviews, major features of them, how to go about conducting them and how they may be drawn on to optimise learning.


Chris Platania-Phung is a Lecturer in Counselling at the Australian College of Applied Psychology, based in Melbourne. From 2016 to 2019 Chris was a Research Fellow at the Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and is currently a Research Associate on a randomised controlled trial of a health service programme evaluation funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Chris’ main research interest is in causes of inequalities in living standards and well-being, especially the role of the critical social sciences in identifying true causes.
