Postgraduate Literature Searching Workshops Ahoy!

uellibrarycard1 031

As promised in my various induction and refresher sessions over the past few weeks, I’m running a couple of literature searching workshops next week for postgraduate psychology students. The sessions will cover the key databases as well as sharing some tips and tricks to help you effectively and efficiently search for research articles on your chosen topic.

A thorough literature search is a fundamental element of the research processs and ensuring a comprehensive search of the research literature is essential to ensure your work is of the highest quality. There is nothing worse than completing your research topic and finding you have missed a key paper on your chosen topic. By conducting an extensive literature search, you can minimise the chances of that happening and I’m going to show you how!

Further sessions will be planned to take place in November so fear not if you can’t come along to this one (if there are other days that are more suitable, please let me know in the comments and I will try – as much as possible – to factor this into the planning of future sessions).

Undergraduates: stay tuned! I will post news as soon as possible about workshops catered to you.

To sign up for a session please click the link for a ticket as indicated below and use your UEL email address when signing up (just so I can ensure that the person requesting a place is a UEL student!).
