Systematic literature and data searching

 

Content:

When positioning your own research (questions, methods, data, etc.) in a research paper or research proposal – or when writing a review – you do not want to miss important existing literature or data on your topic. To prevent such omissions a systematic literature or data search is often conducted with the aim to retrieve all relevant literature and data.

In this introductory workshop a demo will be given on how to develop a systematic search strategy – usable in multiple databases – and where to search for data.

Learning objective: 

After this two hour workshop and demo you will know:

  • Where to search for existing data on a topic
  • How to build a search strategy
  • Where to pay attention to when using search strategies in different databases
  • Get some hands-on experience in systematic searching.
