03.11.2022 kl. 09.00 - 15.00


The objective of this course is to provide an understanding of the various aspects that are important when searching for literature as part of your PhD.

The course covers:

  • Structured literature search – How to apply a structured method to prepare and carry out your search e.g. for a literature review
  • Evaluating and organising your search - How to prepare and apply relevant criteria for assessing and documenting the search results. How reference management tools can facilitate the process of organising search results
  • Other perspectives on searching – How to use text mining, citation search and other tools to find relevant literature

The course is a “toolbox for research”-course with a mix of presentations and hands-on activities, either individually focusing on your own PhD-project or in small groups with a shared focus. Remember to bring your computer.
