A literature review is a comprehensive summary of previous research on a topic. The literature review surveys scholarly articles, books, and other sources relevant to a particular area of research. The review should enumerate, describe, summarize, objectively evaluate and clarify this previous research. It should give a theoretical base for the research and help you (the author) determine the nature of your research. The literature review acknowledges the work of previous researchers, and in so doing, assures the reader that your work has been well conceived. It is assumed that by mentioning a previous work in the field of study, that the author has read, evaluated, and assimiliated that work into the work at hand.
A literature review creates a “landscape” for the reader, giving her or him a full understanding of the developments in the field. This landscape informs the reader that the author has indeed assimilated all (or the vast majority of) previous, significant works in the field into her or his research.
The notion of information logistics (IL) has been introduced as a new information management paradigm. Goal is to enable the effective and efficient delivery of needed information in the right format, granularity and quality, at the right place, at the right point in time to the right actors. IL has received much attention in recent years, both from researchers and practitioners. In order to better understand the state-of-the-art and current research trends in the research field of IL, this paper presents a comprehensive IL literature survey. In total, we identified 53 scientific articles discussing IL concepts and approaches. These articles were systematically analyzed and finally classified in ten research clusters. Based on these clusters, a more comprehensive understanding of past, current, and future IL developments becomes possible.
