Dr Terry Royce has kindly forwarded his PPT presentation from the very popular Academic Writing workshop on Tuesday. It is comprehensive enough that even those who did not attend should be able to glean some useful information. See attachment below.
Today's session provided an overview about developing search terms from your Research question (or topic), about choosing the right database and some tips for keeping a record of the searches you do and managing the results.
What are Bookmarklets?
UTS Library has set up two bookmarklets to make it easier for you to access the full text resources that we subscribe to.
Evernote is a free web based application that helps you to:
- Capture anything - Save your ideas, tasks, projects, files, and more
- Read your saved items and notes anywhere you go
- Search your saved files and notes by keyword, tag, or even search text inside images.
These are some the features that make me choose to use Evernote!

Bibliometrics measure impact, or how many people are talking about your work. They don’t necessarily measure how good your work is, just how much it’s being mentioned.
Recently, I have met with quite a few PhD/Doctoral students, Research Fellows and other academic staff in the Faculty of Health who are embarking on doing a comprehensive literature review for their project. I find that most people need similar types of guidance and to know about much the same types of steps, so this is an attempt to provide some kind of guide to help with the process.
