Аннотация

During the course, the students learn to apply information resources and specialized software to preparing analytical literature reviews (bibliographic databases – Web of Science, Scopus) and reviewing the media data (news databases – Integrum, Factiva). We discuss the strategies of information retrieval and the principles of organizing literature review, including the citation practices. The large part of the course is devoted to the principles of working with bibliographic databases: composing search query to gather citation data, using the in-built instruments to analyze scientific trends, exporting the data from the database. Using the obtained data, students practice building citation maps in the scientific landscape visualizing software (VOSviewer and CitNetExplorer) and write a literature review in a chosen field. A separate part of the course is devoted to working with news databases. In the last chapter of the course, the strategies of literature synthesis and writing the review are discussed.
