Efficient and complete literature searches for researchers (on campus EOS 01.350)

A practical workshop on search techniques and search strategies for literature reviews. This means that you will start searching for literature for your own research project. During the workshop we will discuss your search process and the requirements for a good search strategy. We will help you to search more efficiently for academic literature in academic databases such as Web of Science. We will also pay attention on how to find grey literature. At the end of the workshop you will know how to use different search techniques and basic search strategies.

Who can participate?

How can you prepare for the workshop?

Try to find literature on your research topic. Record your search activities including search terms, search operators, filters and databases used, and publications found.

  • Write down your question and identify the key concepts. Formulate search terms for each key concept.
  • Search in academic databases. If you are using Google Scholar, please, also use an academic database such as Web of Science.
  • Track your search. Record your search query (combination of search terms), the databases, and search filters you have used. Note the number of results you get. Modify your search query if necessary. If you like, you can have a look at the checklist for Reporting Literature Searches in Systematic Reviews. This will give you an idea of how to report a search.
  • Try to select two publications which are relevant for your topic.

During the meeting, we will discuss your experiences and relate them to effective search techniques and strategies.
