We help you with the literature search
The literature search or better literature research or source research is part of student work and learning and the daily bread of every scientist. Therefore, students must learn from the beginning where to find relevant literature on a seminar topic, seminar paper or thesis. Without specialist literature, students can not work scientifically. Because with their help, they deal independently with scientific theories and results of studies, weigh the various findings and their arguments and form their own scientifically sound opinion.
Help with the literature search or search includes the following areas: Provision of targeted search strategies and methods and techniques of searching for literature in databases. Since today all scientific literature is recorded in electronic form, usually eliminates the tedious search in file boxes. Thus, a literature search can run much faster than before, if the student well mastered the literature search.
But above all, students need help in developing an efficient search strategy. Because in a literature search nothing should be left to chance. Support in the development of a search strategy means assistance in the development of the question, selection of keywords and search terms on a scientific topic, selection of databases and placement of research strategies and research scenarios. Aid in the search for literature means, above all, support for research in databases, which includes both scientific databases in the respective subject area and general databases of the universities. Even the search for literature in search engines like Google wants to be learned. For this reason, assistance in searching for literature in databases first of all means an introduction to the structure and functions of databases and further aids in searching for literature in databases. Students are supported in formulating their own search query, systematically entering them in the electronic search field according to specific criteria and then reading, selecting and saving the electronically outputted results according to their own search criteria.
Finally, help with the literature search also means support in the targeted and efficient documentation of selected literature sources. These must therefore be systematically recorded and documented, so that the student can gain a secure overview of his recorded literature and build on it. Therefore, help with the literature search also means assistance in developing your own small database or literature management.
