Developing Systematic Literature Searches - General
Domain: A2 Cognitive abilities

Format of Workshop: Information and Discussion
Suitable for: All

This workshop is designed to introduce you to the techniques available to develop a more systematic search strategy for a literature review. You will learn about:

* what makes a literature search systematic

* formulating a focused question

* identifying important concepts within the question

* identifying search terms to describe those concepts

* using Boolean operators, truncation, and other key features

* approaches to verifying the performance of the strategy

It will offer you hands-on learning, and will be particularly helpful for developing your literature review. You will be encouraged to relate the techniques directly to your research topic and there will be opportunities to discuss specific issues you have encountered. In order to make this possible, attendees are asked for some basic information in advance. Please choose the version relevant to your subject.
