Microeconomics is derived from the Greek term Â“micro,Â” meaning Â“small,Â” and economics, the mother discipline. Applied microeconomics is a sub-field of economics which uses data and econometric methods to test economic theory. It is the subspecialty of economics that strives to understand how individuals, households or consumers, and companies or producers choose to allocate their limited resources and how they arrive at those decisions in rational fashion. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results. Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications. The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
