You'll find a number of resources to help you with writing on our Writing Help guide.

You may find it helpful to review the section of our Literature Review Tutorial that discusses synthesizing ideas. This section provides tools to help you organize your ideas and identify themes and gaps in the literature you review on your topic.

See the links below to access the tutorial and to get additional explanation of how to compare and contrast ideas, topics, and resources.
