What is the best way to do a good literature review?
Is Google scholar good? I am using google search key words and pdf based on latest year, but then again, some articles are too weak in content, and not famous, maybe junk. I would like to know better options and methods, can anyone share?
Google scholar is all right as it lets you see how many times an article has been cited in other papers. I mostly use my university's own library search engine - does your university's website have a library resources page? I also sometimes use Web of Knowledge (again via my university's website), which allows you to do things like search for the most widely-cited authors in your field.
I am going to apply for doctorate course at Manchester, but I do not know how it is going in UK. Also I heard some kind of degree. So what is the difference between MPhil, MRes and PhD? Each based on the other?
And I heard not exist serial number on PhD degree. Is it true, or not? ...cause this case it may be not acceptable for nationalization (?)
Please give me an answer for these question, I am so confused.
Hi all, how are you all doing? I am currently writing up the discussion section for my final chapter and it's proving much more challenging than I had anticipated! There's so many findings and prior relevant literature. Also teasing out findings as opposed to just results is much more challenging I suppose. Anyone else found the discussion section most challenging?
Chickpea, that's wonderful news, well done! :)
Yes it's just the section of the final findings chapter! I'm dreading the overall discussion though I hope it'll be easier than this. I'm sat with it now and already started procrastinating, I find I start procrastinating when I either find something too challenging or just too boring/repetitive!
I know what you mean - I go right to the wire with easy/boring things and difficult/challenging things too! Plus I think the thesis is just such a big deal that it's scary to start wading in to the harder parts of it - I need to keep telling myself that it's better to get something written and then start changing it than to sit there with nothing to work with!
