One of the fundamental drivers of scientific progress is research integration and synthesis, which is essentially beneficial for developing a research vision. Hence, literature reviews prove to be highly useful to many researchers at all academic stages. Analysing the literature and writing reviews for a thesis, article or project proposal can sometimes be challenging to fresh early-career scientists. For a review paper, even greater attention must be given to the methodological approach to conduct a reproducible and thorough review of the existing scientific literature.
