Scholars are continually conducting studies on education topics ranging from kindergarten readiness and teacher pay to public university funding and Ivy League admissions. One of the best ways for a reporter to get up to date quickly, though, is to read a study of studies, which come in two forms: a literature review and a meta-analysis. A literature review is what it sounds like — a review of all the academic literature that exists on a specific issue or research question. Your news coverage also benefits from literature reviews: Rather than hunting down studies on your own and then worrying whether you found the right ones, you can, instead, share the results of a literature review that already has done that legwork for you. When scholars conduct a literature review, they summarize and synthesize multiple research studies and their findings, highlighting gaps in knowledge and the studies that are the strongest or most pertinent.
