Narrative or Traditional Literature Reviews
Systematic Literature Reviews have the same elements as Narrative Reviews
Because of the comprehensive, time-consuming, and rigorous nature of systematic reviews, social work students are much more likely to do narrative or traditional literature reviews for their course assignments. However, it is desirable for students to be as specific and transparent as possible in terms of search strategies, resources consulted, conclusions drawn, etc. even though the literature review may be less comprehensive than a systematic review.
