Dr Alexandra Klimova (ITMO University) gave a seminar on how to do a systematic literature review.
Main goals of the seminar were:
- To present step-by-step guidelines for conducting literature reviews
- To suggest how to identify relevant papers to review in a reasonable range,
- To describe how to extract relevant content from identified papers, analyze and synthesize literature,
- To explain how to present the results effectively.
Students also got a quick tutorial on how to use reference management software Mendeley.
After the lectures students worked in groups conducting several stages of systematic literature review and presented their results at the end of seminar.
