Description

Working with the literature

Too much to read and not enough time? Managing the literature is one of the key challenges for HDRs. There’s so much knowledge and information out there that is related to your research topic. How exhaustive do you need to be? This workshop considers the purpose and aims of working with the literature in your field, identifying what is productive use of your time. We aim to make the process of navigating the literature much more straight forward and far less daunting.

This workshop is open to all HDRs. It is also part of the Science, Health and Medicine Career development Framework program and can be counted as a valid activity

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Understand the ways in which you can make the literature work for you
  • Recognise the key purposes of writing a literature review
  • Know when you are progressing your writing and when you are procrastinating
