Systematic literature reviews are the building blocks of conducting research. They aim to establish what we know and what we do not know in a research domain following a methodology that is transparent and reproducible. There are many great examples of systematic literature reviews. You can find the links to some of my favourite systematic literature review papers below:
Methods for mitigating disruptions in complex supply chain structures: a systematic literature review
- How has research on managing risks for mitigating or avoiding the impact of disruptions in complex supply networks developed over the years?
- How are complex supply networks modelled to facilitate analysing supply chain risks?
- Which methods have been proposed to manage and mitigate the impact of disruptions in complex supply networks?
This paper has a Table 1, synthesising earlier systematic literature reviews on supply chain management and risk management, which could be a good start for researchers.
Connecting additive manufacturing to circular economy implementation strategies: Links, contingencies and causal loops
- What are the recent developments, current gaps and future research perspectives of the Additive Manufacturing and Circular Economy interface?
- How can the role of Additive Manufacturing in Circular Economy be conceptualised?
- Additive Manufacturing: ‘3D print*’, ‘additive manufactur*’, ‘rapid manufactur*’ and ‘rapid prototyp*’.
- Circular Economy: ‘circular econ*’, ‘sustainab*’, ‘closed loop’, ‘revers*’, ‘theor*’, ‘refus*’, ‘recycl*’, ‘refurbish*’, ‘reus*’, ‘remanufactur*’, ‘reduc*’, ‘repurpos*’, ‘redesign*’, ‘repair*’, ‘resell*’, ‘rethink*’, ‘recover*’, ‘remin*’, ‘industrial symbiosis’ and ‘industrial ecolog*’.
