I'm struggling to structure my lit review as my topic is something that should be experimental, but I cant run any experiments

therefore my dissertation is going to be looking at other peoples studies of my question and their results and discussing those in ways they havent discussed them in or in more depth in some areas and comparing them to other studies.

therefore im not really going to have a methodology section as i am not performing any experiments or questionnaires or anything myself, just looking through other peoples results, so this section will be minimal, and in my 'results' section it will be more case studies from the things ive read. due to this case study section, i am unsure what is meant to go in the initial literature review to avoid a lot of overlap between this and the case study section in which i will discuss the results of these studies

can anyone help?
