What Is the Purpose of Combing Literature?

Awareness of topic issues comes from reading and analyzing literature. Awareness of the problem is not generated from thin air. The second is finding problems based on existing research. Want to know more? Just keep reading!

The purpose of combing literature is to:

First, sort out the historical development of the chosen problem. Every problem has a developmental context. Without understanding the context of academic development, it is not possible to conduct in-depth studies of academic problems. In other words, where the problem comes from, it is possible to predict what direction the problem will go. It is important not only to sort out the status quo of domestic research, but also to sort out the research status of this problem in the international academic community, so that it can fully understand the basic situation of this research.

If you turn on the computer, go directly to the subject, write specific questions, and do not consult relevant literature. The result may be low level repetition. There is no value in a paper like that. Even if sent, it is only the result of workload or job title. That does not mean that it contributes to academics. In academic papers, papers that go directly to the subject in the beginning are generally bad papers. People are expensive, and the text is expensive. Paper costs are also in the song. This kind of song is expressed through memory and analysis of previous studies from predecessors.

A professional perspective must be owned and for most students it is quite difficult. They need professional help and fortunately, thanks to the internet each student can easily ask for professional help. They can search for writing services like, Writing Cheap, just by typing in a few keywords. Google helps a lot! Guided and assisted by a professional writer, they can save their valuable time.

Second, combing the literature is a full affirmation of the academic contributions made by the predecessors. Anyone's research is based on the research of his predecessors. This is what Newton said, standing on a giant shoulder. In this study, this giant is not a specific person, but a predecessor who has contributed to this academic problem.

The legacy of academics is to respect history and not respect the academic contributions of its predecessors. It is difficult to open up new fields of research, and it is difficult to carry out in-depth research on academic research. If we do not respect history, we will also fall into blind pride, thinking that other people have not reached their own level, and will eventually fall into repetition of stories that other people say, wasting academic resources.

Third, the most basic goal of combing the literature is to find problems in previous research and find a breakthrough for their own research. Most academic problems cannot be solved by a generation of scholars. The generation of scholars can only solve problems that can be solved by a generation of scholars below the cognitive level, but even so, there are omissions and research gaps. There are shortcomings in subjectivity and there are shortcomings in research. Therefore, scholars from the next generation must repeatedly read, compare, and analyze the results of existing research from their predecessors, and find problems and gaps in research.

In this way, it is possible to deepen their own research choices or to continue the research of their predecessors, or to find gaps and shortcomings of previous research to redeem, or to find new research in the realm of original problems. This truly reflects the research value of the topic.
