Abstract

The systematic literature review is one of the first steps in any research work. However, MSc students present their limitations when begin conducting their own dissertation, mandatory to certificate. These limitations are justified due to students are not completely conscientious of the importance of this previous work along any research. Introducing the literature review process from the very beginning is a key factor to its correct elaboration. Therefore, to initially guide students in this process is considered fundamental when performing both, work assignments and the final dissertation for obtaining MCs certification. On the basis of the work developed by Medina López et al. [1] this paper develops a guideline to help students to systematically perform the literature review phase. This paper will not only allow supporting MSc students but also doctorate students or future researchers.
