Moving from research question to literature review in the Social Sciences
Thursday 28th January 14.00-16.00
This 2 hour workshop will be invaluable for researchers hoping to find suitable literature for their literature review, for which a well constructed set of search terms and an understanding of online search engines are prerequisites. This workshop will allow researchers to use their own research questions to build a search and apply it to a range of databases. Techniques for structuring a search will be explained, an overview of key online resources for the social sciences will be given , major search tools will be explored, and strategies for approaching large results sets and sourcing papers will be discussed. This practical workshop will involve paper exercises and online activities using attendees own research topics.
Who is this session for? All DPhil Students and Research Staff in the Social Sciences
Presenters: Helen Worrell and Craig Finlay
Venue: Social Science Library, Manor Road
