This article by Will Hopkins gives some very practical advice about structuring a literature review. Although some parts of it refer to specific requirements of the journal he is writing for, there is a lot of good advice here that you won’t go wrong following. There is a very good section on assessing the quality of the published work and one on interpreting effects.
