Grimnir Posted May 16, 2015 Share Posted May 16, 2015 Hi all, I'm in the process of writing a literature review and I'm wondering what the etiquette is for citing a previous review that has some overlap with your paper? For example, if you are writing an updated review on a focused topic but some of the subtopics overlap with another broad review done previously: Is it enough to cite the previous review in the introduction and state that you are building on and updating some of the findings or do you need to specifically cite this paper every time you reach similar conclusions? This is my first time doing a review so I'm rather paranoid. Thanks for the help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
