Review articles

A review article is an article that summarizes the current state of understanding on a topic. A review article surveys and summarizes previously published studies, rather than reporting new facts or analysis. Review articles are sometimes also called survey articles or, in news publishing, overview articles. (Wikipedia)
Review articles can be found by searching either Web of Science (refine by Review) or Scopus (limit to Review)
