Literature reviewing and cataloging

Your PhD literature review - Dr Mary Roberts (Victoria University of Wellington)

Students embarking on doctoral research are usually well aware that they will have to produce a literature review but they are often unclear as to what exactly this entails. This presentation looks at the PhD literature review as an academic genre and explains the functions of the literature review in the context of your PhD.

An approach to cataloguing research literature - Dr Te Kani Kingi

This presentation discusses an approach that students may want to adopt when conducting a literature review. In particular it focuses on how literature might be reviewed, organised, stored, and later accessed.

Journaling - Val Diggle

Many researchers across various disciplines are either required or elect to keep a journal; therefore this presentation considers keeping a research journal and critical self-reflective writing. The presentation is structured around: The emergence of journal writing historically as a research method; Common features of the research journal; Reflective writing as a kind of creative non-fiction; the impact of reflective writing on the researcher; and the solutions to common journal writing problems.
