Literature Review & Research Skills Guide: Introduction


Welcome to the Literature Review & Research Skills Guide.

This library research guide was made for postgraduate research students and is specifically useful for EEB501 and ERP502 students. It is designed to equip you with the skills to achieve your research goals in these subjects. Although you are encouraged to work through all of this now, you will probably need to come back to the EndNote and SAGE Research Methods sections again later.

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, please see the library's resource guides.

Please note that this guide is a supplement and does not replace your subject outline, learning modules and advice from your lecturer.

If you need help with finding resources and developing your search strategy, contact the Library. Library staff are here to help; you aren't expected to know everything about research and the Library can help point you in the right direction.

Wishing you the best for the study ahead!
