Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Social and Behavioral Sciences

Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Social and Behavioral Sciences

You’ve been assigned to write a literature review in the social sciences...but how do you get started? What kinds of literature reviews are there? Where should you search? How do you know what search terms to use? Learn the answers to these questions and more in this interactive workshop. By the end of this session, you’ll be able to 

  • Identify different types of literature reviews

  • Find relevant databases

  • Create effective search terms

This workshop will focus on research in the social and behavioral sciences, such as education, communication, human development, psychology, and sociology. 

This session will be offered live via Zoom and will be recorded and sent out afterwards to all who register. While we encourage attendance during the live virtual session so that you can interact with the instructor and ask questions, you're welcome to sign up for the session to receive the recording of it afterwards even if you can't attend it live. 

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, welcome! Please email lisab5@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
