In this process, the research abstract tabular outline will help the students in organizing the references and establish the important details in writing the literature review. It will also identify what to be included in the literature review and what to be disposed of in reading and analyzing different resources and references. This research abstract form in tabular outline for research reading might help students in preparing and writing the literature review in the research writing process as it is beneficial to them to promote and sustain research endeavors.
