  • Comprehensive Searches for Literature Reviews Date: Monday, March 1, 2021
    Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm
    Presenter: Cozette Comer, Kiri DeBose, & Ginny Pannabecker
    Location: Online

    Conducting a comprehensive literature review can be overwhelming - but there are approaches and resources that can make this process easier. Join us for this 1.5 hour workshop where we’ll discuss approaches to identifying essential information sources (e.g., academic databases) and designing a comprehensive search strategy. While this systematic approach comes from evidence synthesis review methods, it is transferable to any literature review.
