Take control of your PhD journey: Literature search for Medicine and the Health Sciences
We would like to inform that next semester, the seminar series Take control of your PhD journey, which includes this seminar, will be offered as a PhD course with 2 ECTS credits. (updated 05.10.2017)
Literature search is an essential part of every research project. For science to move forwards, new research must build on all relevant sources, including both established knowledge and the newest discoveries. Insufficient search strategies may lead to perpetuating outdated or even false information and biased views.
This seminar focuses on doing systematic literature searches and how to use scientific databases in an efficient and effective way. It further gives an introduction to searching for existing research data. A large component of the seminar is to address the various purposes of literature searches.
This seminar is a freestanding part of the seminar series Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing.
