1.Check the database you are using to see if it allows you to limit your search to literature reviews. Many of our databases offer this feature.

For example:

PsycINFO / CINAHL Complete / PubMed
Change limits of 'Form or Content Type' to Literature-Review.

2. Search for your topic and the word 'review' in the article abstract. Limit this search to peer-reviewed articles.

Some articles will use review in the abstract, but will not be primarily literature reviews. Check to see that the article fits your criteria.
