A good academic piece of work aims to locate itself within the available body of knowledge on the subject area. Knowledge can come from a range of different sources, each contributing to the body of knowledge on the subject. The final article in this three-part series discusses the importance of appraising and making sense of literature
when considering the knowledge relating to a particular subject area. Guidelines and methods are described to help organize, collate and make sense of the knowledge obtained, so that a logical plan can be created to structure academic work. The academic requirements of different levels are then briefly explained to give guidance on how best to use the literature to support and inform discussions.
