If your thesis includes a literature review you should consider joining this course and learn how to do the review systematically.
“A systematic review attempts to collate all empirical evidence that fits pre-specified eligibility criteria in order to answer a specific research question. It uses explicit, systematic methods that are selected with a view to minimizing bias, thus providing more reliable findings from which conclusions can be drawn and decisions made” (Cochrane Handbook).
Intended learning outcome:
After the course the participants should:
- be able to develop and validate protocols for conducting systematic literature searches
- be able to select appropriate systematic search strategies
- be able to evaluate search strategies and search results
- have the skills to handle bibliographic references in reference management software for sorting the literature
