Finding information for your research for external PhDs



Finding information for your research is an essential skill. The library can help you.

Next to the face-to-face workshops for internal researchers the library offers remote live Q&A sessions for external researchers as well.

Learning objectives:

  • identifying main concepts and search terms (keywords)
  • how to set up advanced search strategies
  • selecting appropriate sources
  • fine-tuning your search strategies and terms
  • how to translate search strategies for (systematic) reviews using different databases
  • some advanced features of specific databases.

Target group: External PhDs and Research Master Students

Language: English

Course format: Remote live Q&A sessions

Prerequisites: Before attending, make sure you checked our tutorial, as these sessions are not meant to cover basics.
