Old Advanced workshop (systematic) literature reviews


This course will help you gain insight in the various approaches and aspects of conducting a literature review. You will be able to apply this on a review of your own. 


On the first course day participants will deal with a theoretical background and think about their own cases, research questions, and likely approaches. They will receive both information from the teachers and from group interaction. Agreements will be made about what the participants are going to do between the first and second course day.

The second course day will consist mainly of presentations. Participants will elaborate on the type of review they chose to do, as well as discuss the search process, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and so on. Participants and teachers will respond with questions and advice, and the presentation and review process will be evaluated for completion of the course.
