All young scientists-in-training, whether MSc, Ph.D., or new postdoctoral researchers will be asked to write a literature review. This workshop gives you the skills to write a comprehensive and informative review by adopting good writing practices.
If you are about to write your first review you will likely be unsure of how to approach this often daunting task.
Good planning is key
I will show you how to break down the literature review into its component parts, how to plan your writing, and how to identify and use relevant literature in your database searches.
You will also learn how to format your bibliography correctly - something that many scientists-in-training are not experienced in. Producing a comprehensive bibliography is a large part of the literature review and a major part of the peer-review process if you are hoping to publish your work.
I look forward to seeing you in the workshop, and please do contact me by email if you have any questions.
