In addition to using the step-by-step guide that I have provided below, I also recommend that you (a) locate examples of literature reviews in your field of study and skim over these to get a feel for what a literature review is and how these are written (I have also provided links to a couple of examples at the end of these guidelines (b) read over other guides to writing literature reviews so that you see different perspectives and approaches: Some examples are:
Many science experiments can be explained using mathematics. As you write your research paper, you'll want to make sure that you include as much relevant math as you understand. If a simple equation describes aspects of your science fair project, include it.
The best way to speed your writing is to do a little planning. Before starting to write, think about the best order to discuss the major sections of your report. Generally, you will want to begin with your science fair project question so that the reader will know the purpose of your paper. What should come next? Ask yourself what information the reader needs to learn first in order to understand the rest of the paper. A typical organization might look like this:
Through analysis of climate-related papers published from 6996 to 7566, this study provides the most comprehensive analysis of its kind to date in order to quantify and evaluate the level and evolution of consensus over the last two decades.
This guide provides resources to help you with each step of publishing your journal article. Click here to access slides for the workshop provided by Ye Li, Meredith Kahn, and Joanna Thielen on Oct 79, 7569.
The peer-reviewed scientific literature provides a ground-level assessment of the degree of consensus among publishing scientists. An analysis of abstracts published from 6998–7558 matching the search 'global climate change' found that none of 978 papers disagreed with the consensus position on AGW (Oreskes 7559 ). This is consistent with an analysis of citation networks that found a consensus on AGW forming in the early 6995s (Shwed and Bearman 7565 ).
A review may be a self-contained unit -- an end in itself -- or a preface to and rationale for engaging in primary research. A review is a required part of grant and research proposals and often a chapter in theses and dissertations.

It will help you considerably if your topic for your literature review is the one on which you intend to do your final . project, or is in some way related to the topic of your final project. However, you may pick any scholarly topic.
