I’m happy to announce I recorded a podcast with Ben, from Literature Review HQ.
The topic of the episode was: “Is the literature review a journey?”
As the weather’s progressively gearing up towards a summer mood (argh! British summer!) and July is getting really close, I thought we could have a round-up of articles about summer.
As we saw in Wendy’s interview, it’s important to make sure that you’re not going it alone while doing your literature review.
But it’s not always possible to knock on the door of your adviser at 11pm when you’re feeling blocked. So you need a plan B.
The thing is, there are tons of places where you can find some online support, even late at night. And here are some suggestions for you to have a look at.
Sorry for the posting interruption: some annoying illness stopped me in my tracks. But I’m back! And here is a round-up of great articles to read over the weekend.
This week’s theme is “working in academia”. (The last one we had on that theme was at the beginning of May. You can have a look at it over here.) Let’s begin with some of my favourites.
This week’s link round-up is going to be shorter than usual but to the point since our theme today is the literature review.
Before creating this website, when I first set out to find interesting information about the literature review to point my students to, I found many dull, long-winded library websites. And then I found Ben’s blog, Literature Review HQ.
Ben has been blogging about the literature review for many years now, since he found himself confronted to the exercise as a PhD student. And nowadays he keeps finding new and interesting ways to make this very topic interesting.
He proves it once again today in the guest post below, where he is going to tell you about the untold benefits of writing a literature review.
