Advanced Literature Searching

Getting Started

This guide is intended to expand your literature-searching skills. In particular it will focus on how to use articles or researchers you've identified as useful to find additional literature related to your topic.

The skills covered in this guide presuppose you have begun your literature search, have selected articles you will include, and have identified key researchers for your topic. If you have not begun your literature search, the information in this guide is likely to be unhelpful. If you are looking for guidance on getting started with literature searching, or building your search skills, review the the following two guides.
