I am writing a literature review and I may need to include three case studies. What is the best way to go about it? Am I allowed to include the whole case study for the reader's review and then analyze the points made?

Thank you for your advice in advance.

  • What do you mean by 'include the whole case study'? – henning Jan 3 at 19:13
  • To copy and paste it as it is, word for word. Then reference it. – Sambo Jan 3 at 19:29
  • I don't know about your field, but in mine, case studies are full-length articles. These you couldn't cite verbatim from beginning to end. – henning Jan 3 at 20:28
  • Noted with thanks! For clarity, I'm looking to use mini-case studies which are not that long. Hence why i am using three. But I do see your point. – Sambo Jan 4 at 6:58
  • Why would you include a case study in your literature review? – user2768 Jan 5 at 15:39
