In this practical workshop, which is designed for researchers in the social sciences who are transitioning into PhD study, you will learn how to get started with the literature review process.

By attending, you will learn about:
* the functions of the literature review and the different ways of structuring it
* the resources that you can use to locate relevant literature and how to access them
* the different stages of researching and writing a literature review
* how to evaluate literature and what it means to be critical
