Thematic review of the literature example

Thematic reviews of literature are organized around a topic or issue, rather than the progression of time, or organization based solely on the author or paper.  An authentic thematic reviews tend to break away from chronological order and synthesizes information from different sources into a holistic understanding of a topic.
