Register for the PhD workshop in literature searching

In the background of your thesis or article you want to include the most relevant and important research on your topic, but how can you be sure you found it?   

In this workshop we will go through the method of structured literature searching in databases. You will learn basic principles that are applicable in all databases. There will be time for working with searches on your own topic in a database of your choice and for asking questions.  

The target audience is PhD students and researchers. 

During the workshop you will learn how to: 

  • Construct a search strategy based on your research question   
  • Adapt the search strategy to different databases  
  • Improve a search, for example making it narrower or broader   
  • Document and save a search and set up alerts
