We are also interested to find out which dimensions of service quality have the greatest potential for improvement. These journals are analyzed which are published during the years from 2009-2014. This is because of service quality improvements and the latest research methodology used for information technology. SERVQUAL dimensions used in the service industry are studied which involves customer expected service and their perceptions. The objective of this literature review would be to investigate the Service quality research by examining and listing various factors of SERVQUAL dimensions mentioned in various journals study conducted in various countries and published in various types of journals over the past decade. Another objective would be to analyze the variables of these articles by year and type of journals to determine the various trends and to help researchers identify future directions of research in service quality. The review would help scholars and other practitioners in bringing new idea and improve the service quality. The findings from literature would include deep analysis in service quality dimensions by categorizing the customer perceived service quality and information service quality.
