Writing your literature review: a hands-on workshop

Friday, January 25, 2019 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Building 14, 14N-132 (DIRC)
160 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Are you writing a literature review for a thesis or an article? Need to find background information and go deep into the literature to find out what has been done before? Join us for this hands-on session covering techniques for identifying places to look for articles, conference proceedings, patents, and more; some tips on keeping track of what you've found; and some ways to search for related works, overviews, highly cited works, and other tricks. We'll save some time for hands-on work to identify sources related to your work, so bring your laptop. Don't be surprised late in your writing process by a relevant paper that you didn't find - work on your literature review today! Any discipline is welcome, with a focus on science and engineering.

Two sessions will be offered: Friday Jan 11 from 11am-12pm, and Friday Jan 25 from 2-3pm. Please join us for either one.
