Working with the literature

Too much to read and not enough time? Managing the literature is one of the key challenges for HDRs. There’s an endless amount of knowledge and information out there that is related to your research. How exhaustive do you need to be? This workshop considers the purpose and aims of working with the literature in your field, identifying what is productive use of your time. We aim to make this much more straight forward to navigate this aspect of your research.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Understand the ways in which you can make the literature work for you
  • Recognise the key purposes of writing a literature review
  • Know when you are progressing your writing and when you are procrastinating

This workshop series is available to all HDR students. It is also part of the Science, Health and Medicine Career Development Framework program and can be counted as a valid activity. All these workshops will help you earn CDS points!
