Writing Effective Literature Reviews – Recorded Workshop
August 30 @ 5:00 pm EDT
Available on demand until August 30, 2022
This recorded workshop is taught by Dr. Jane Freeman.
Like research papers and theses, thesis and grant proposals require graduate students to situate their work within the context of other research in their field(s). A well constructed literature review will help you to clarify key points for your reader such as why your work needs to be done, how it is original, and why your proposed method is appropriate. In this one hour online workshop we will examine characteristics of both short and long literature reviews, common mistakes students make when reviewing research in their field, and strategies for increasing the effectiveness of literature reviews. The material covered will be relevant to the literature-review segments of proposals, research papers, and theses.
