Our Literature Synthesis Paper Writing

Performing a literature synthesis for paper writing

A literature synthesis is taking related points from different sources and using them to support a thesis or to provide a better understanding of a topic.

There are four basic stages that make up the synthesis essay writing process:

  • Research: Choose and read your sources. In some cases you may be assigned sources that you will be expected to synthesize. Search for material in your sources that relates to the purpose for writing your essay. Develop a thesis statement and review your sources again looking for further information to support your thesis.
  • Organize your essay: Outline how you will present your related points to best support your thesis. You can use a matrix or grid to help organize points. List each point across the top of a sheet of paper and sources down one side of the paper. In the grid created state what each source has to say about each main point.
  • Write the essay: Write the first draft of your literature synthesis paper following the outline you created.
  • Revise, edit and proofread the essay.

Organizing the literature synthesis paper

The organization of the literature synthesis essay is one of the most critical aspects of the paper. There are several different techniques that could be used such as:

  • Summary: The simplest way of organizing a synthesis essay is to summarize your most relevant sources, one by one with the most important source last. Although it grounds your paper in relevant and specific evidence it reveals little independent thought.
  • Strawman: The strawman technique, presents an argument against your thesis, and then shows that this argument is weak or flawed. This demonstrates that you are aware of the other side of the argument and prepared to answer it. A paper using the strawman argument begins with an introduction and thesis, followed by the main opposing argument, a refutation of the opposing argument, and finally a positive argument.
  • Two reasons: The “two reasons” approach states your thesis, and then provides reasons why the statement is true, supported by evidence from your sources. You may give as many reasons for the truth of your thesis as needed (at least two) but save the most important reason for last, as the reader will remember the end of the paper most clearly.

An example of synthesis in literature that uses many techniques and sources is the paper “Implementation Research: A Synthesis of the Literature”, a publication produced by the National Implementation Research Network at the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute, University of South Florida. The publication is an exhaustive synthesis of the literature on implementation research with several hundred sources cited.
