Dr. Simon Geiger
- Organized by
University Library Basel
in collaboration with
Transferable Skills Program
When starting a new research project, it is sometimes helpful to reconsider the means and practices of searching for literature, in particular when you are working in a new research area or doing interdisciplinary research. Based on the interests of the participants, the workshop gives the possibility to exchange experiences, to rediscover useful search tools and techniques for PhD and postdoc-projects and to use reference management systems in depth.
The Workshop contains
1. Why journal articles? The role and history of the scientific journal.
2. How to find relevant articles? Making the best of Web of Science, SCOPUS, and other databases.
3. A glimpse on bibliometry: Impact Factor, H-Index and how to find them.
4. Monitoring the latest publications in your research area
5. Organizing your literature and notes with reference management systems: Zotero, Mendeley, Endnote or Citavi
Inputs, group discussion, hands-on activities. The participants will be asked in advance, what kind of needs and interests they have and which reference management tools they use or want to get to know.
