The Problem with Literature Reviews

George Siemens, elearnspace, May 02, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have clashes with journal editors over the subject of literature reviews (which, for the most part, I do not provide, and eschew as irrelevant). Siemens writes (and I agree) "A literature review is a paint-by-numbers scheme that tells us what has been done and gives us a sense of which little areas our research can fill in. In times of change, we need a blank canvas to guide our thinking, not a largely-filled in 'normal science' view of the world."
