|TITLE||The Literature Review|
|LEVEL||D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium|
|ECTS CREDITS||Not Applicable|
This workshop will assume doctoral researchers have an understanding of the rationale behind the literature review and will address aspects of source use and the critiquing of sources in the process of writing up the literature review chapter. It will address issues related to working with source material at sentence and paragraph level and will focus on both the technical and paraphrasing aspects of the use of source material. Particular attention will be paid to the avoidance of plagiarism.
By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:
- distinguish between source material that is peripheral to their topic and material that is strictly relevant and reflect this in the writing up of their literature review;
- reflect the relevance/significance of source material in their writing and critique previous knowledge on the topic accordingly;
- cite sources in accordance with the accepted conventions in their field and accepted norms of research integrity.
