Research Scholars Workshop - Introduction to Comprehensive Literature Reviews

Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Have you ever struggled with doing literature reviews? Although you do not have to conduct a literature review as high quality as a systematic review, some strategies from systematic reviews (defined as “a research method that aims to locate and summarize all available evidence for a research question in order to guide decisions and practices”) may help you tackle your research question in a more rigorous way. This workshop will introduce three review types (literature reviews, scoping reviews and systematic reviews), the review process and research question frameworks, search strategy and some available resources and services.

Presented by Marina Zhang, Engineering & Informatics Librarian, Lichtenberger Engineering Library
