Best practice in food science and nutrition literature searching

Short webinar: Adjusting your search for different databases

Friday 14 November at 3pm BST (10am EST)

For a comprehensive literature review, it’s best practice not to just search one database and one database alone. Each database has unique content, and you need to be sure not to introduce bias to your review by missing relevant literature. This short webinar focuses on the features to pay attention to help make sure you get the best results possible from each database you use.

This 30 minute webinar will look at a search on the Ovid, Web of Science, and EBSCOhost platforms, as well as PubMed.

The tutorial will be followed by a question and answer session.

If you would like to receive a certificate of attendance following the session, please let us know by responding to your registration confirmation.
