Literature Reviews in the Physical Sciences

This is a 75-minute workshop for students doing background research (especially a literature/lit review) in physics, astrophysics, cosmology, and astronomy. It is designed to get you started using materials, especially online resources, to support your work.

Attendees will:

  • Differentiate among types of reviews and which methodologies fit your research.
  • Select the types of documents and research products that will be helpful during the lit review process.
  • Perform advanced searches in the Web of Science, Scopus, and content-specific databases like INSPIRE and the Astrophysics Data System (ADS) to hone in on a topic.
  • Export references as they go and learn the basics of organizing sources to make the writing process just a bit easier.

Audience: This workshop is open to anyone in the Yale community.
