Review: an article published after examination of published materials on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from historical articles on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type. - PubMed MeSH definition of Review [Publication Type]
