Literature Reviews: Searching and Keeping Track

April 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


We will cover the purposes of literature reviews; the different types of reviews; developing effective search strategies; finding the right databases to search; locating scholarly articles, theses / dissertations, books, and more; and resources to help you keep track of your research. There will be time to engage with the presenters, so bring your questions.

Although this session is appropriate for students in any discipline, the focus and examples will be drawn from the humanities and social sciences.

If you need help with systematic or scoping reviews, our guide to Knowledge Synthesis: Systematic, Scoping & Other Reviews  is the best place to start.


If you have questions, concerns, or accessibility needs, please email anne.olsen@ubc.ca
