    You can subscribe (usually for free) to receive Table of Content alerts or newsletters from magazine and journal publishers. You can subscribe (for free) to RSS feeds on various websites and you can follow chosen authors, artists, galleries, and journals on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Doing this will help you to keep up-to-date and make it easier for you to update your literature review.
    For a more detailed approach to the literature review, the University of Melbourne's Gibson Eulan Library has produced a helpsheet, though bear in mind that this has been written for business students.

    As you code, you can record it in a few different ways: index cards, a commonplace book, or in a table or spreadsheet (this last is known as the matrix method. Templates can be downloaded from these links. {Literature review matrix.docx} or {Literature review matrix.xlsx}
    Using the codes, you can now analyse the literature and write your literature review.
    Analyse
    Your literature review is not an annotated bibliography as your aim here is to assess the literature critically and work out where your research interests and art practice sit in the broader arts landscape. As you read and code, you'll also start analysing and you'll continue to analyse as you write. Rereading your codes and the notes you have made under them will help your analysis. If you have kept your notes on index cards, you can spread them out on a table and move them around to identify patterns and connections. If you use an Excel spreadsheet, you can use the sort and filter functions to aid your analysis. Mindmapping can be very useful here.
    Write
    When you write your literature review, you can structure it in a number of different ways: Davies and Beaumont of the University of Melbourne Library list three different ways:
    Difference of approach
    In this structure, you compare the different approaches taken by various critics to the topic.
    From distant to closely related
    In this structure, one critic may touch upon your topic briefly, whilst another will go more in-depth.
    Chronologically
    In this structure, you consider how critics have looked at a topic over time.
    In each of these structures, you will seek to identify trends or themes about your research topic. You will also seek to describe how these themes or trends fit (or not) with your approach.

    Methodologies vs methods
    Pat Thomson has written an excellent blog post on the difference between methodologies vs methods.
    James Scotland also has a very good paper which considers the relationship between ontology, epistemology, methodology and methods in different research paradigms.
    Guide to methods
    Edith Cowan University has an excellent guide to research methods for the creative arts - just remember to scroll down if you don't see anything.
    You can also build your own methods map at Methods Map. Although geared more towards natural and social sciences, it can help you with understanding how it all fits together.
