Is it similar to a narrative review? I’m looking at a survey of a sub-field of computer science and it’s defined as a ‘selective survey’ however I can’t find a definition of this anywhere.

  • Selective is an adjective, and here it means not everything is surveyed, emphasizing that is it not meant to be comprehensive. – Kimball Dec 12 '17 at 15:33
