Increasing the margin between the rich and the poor

 

Answer question 1 in at least 75 words with 1 reference

  1. Some researchers have argued againstdoing a literature review before you start writing your research question and deciding which research method(s) to use. They suggest that reading previous research could unconsciously limit your thinking to only those ideas and avenues of understanding that others have followed. How would you answer these researchers? That is, what are the advantages of doing a literature review early in the research process? What is the purpose of doing the literature review as an early step in the process?
