Lit review techniques — Babbie

When reading I need to keep certain questions in mind:

-What is the overarching theory the author is ascribing to?
-What are the dependent and independent variables?
-What is the causal story?
-What was the method of data collection?

These will help me focus my review and not get bogged down in the technical jargon. It will also help me think about how I will go about my own research. Will I use similar methods or will I use something different? Why?
