It is recommended that you use Latex to write your review, most of the articles that you have been reading for your review would have been prepared using Latex. Journals produce Latex style files and information for the authors on how to prepare their articles such that they confirm to the standard required by the journal. One such style file that would be appropriate for a research review article is that adopted by the AIP journal Reviews of Modern Physics. Using this as an example will ensure that your document will reach the presentational standard required. Here is the style guide for the Journal Review of Modern Physics, rmpguide.pdf, further information including downloads of the REVTEX style file that will make a latex document conform to the same rules can be found here: http://journals.aps.org/rmp/authors
