Reviews of research (also called bibliographic essays or literature reviews) are articles (or book chapters) which cite and summarize what has been published about a topic in recent years. Reviews are published in many sources: scholarly journals, yearbooks, subject encyclopedia-type "companions" and other publications.
For busy students and scholars, reviews of research are useful shortcuts; use the reviews to gain an overview of a subfield and to quickly peruse summaries of the vast output of scholarly publications.
To find reviews of research that are published in journals, go to a database such as PubMed or PsycINFO and enter search terms, then limit your search to reviews and/or systematic reviews by selecting them in the options under Document or Article Type.
