11.1 How to conduct a literature review search?

To conduct a literature review search you will have to use the General Citation Search. For a general instruction on how to use the General Citation Search see Chapter 5.

Depending on how broad you want the results to be, you could use Any of the words, All of the words or The phrase (see Section 5.1.1 on the General query pane for details). This will match these words anywhere in the resulting publications. If you use The phrase, the words will be matched in the order they were entered.

If you want to narrow down the results as much as possible, ticking the Title words only box will only provide publications where the words are included in the title. As one would normally expect important publications in a field to include relevant key words in their title, this might be a good strategy.
