Postgraduate Researchers (February 2020)

Literature Searching - Essential Skills

 

This workshop series is designed primarily for research postgraduate students who are new to resources available at the University of Aberdeen. These three workshops present techniques, tips and resources to help find academic and scholarly books and journal articles as well as reliable support material. Planning your search is covered in Part 1 which also looks at resources for books (print and electronic format) and support material. Part 2 concentrates on journal articles and conference papers. The final workshop covers the use of RefWorks which can be used to manage and keep track of the materials found in the course of your research and assist in the writing and formatting of research papers and your PhD thesis.
