How to make a quality literature review. Advanced search in Web of Science


In international practice, it is considered that a good literature review should contain 100-300 literature sources, for which an analysis and conclusions are given. Sources should be relevant to interesting readers, and for Ukrainian authors also foreign. And the question arises: where to get so many sources in order to analyze them. Naturally, each scientist has a selection of articles for analysis and sources of relevant research. But often the problem arises that scientists lack information and sources for a quality literature review even when using the most ambitious databases: Scopus and Web of Science. As paradoxical as it may be, but often scientists are not able to correctly compose database queries and correctly search for the necessary information. In this case, it is recommended to use advanced search.
