Dissertation Help & Expert-Level Research Resources
When performing a Literature Review at the doctoral level, the search will be complex:
Pay close attention to the date of publication of both Information resources and research studies.
ADVICE: Create multiple Citation Folders to gather article citations, book chapters, blogs, videos, etc., for each type of information sought. Do NOT mix INFORMATION resource citations with RESEARCH study citation resources.
Most Dissertation resources will be found in Library Databases, but some information resources will not be published through commercial publishing sources. Information items published outside the normal publishing processes are called Gray Literature. Your Dissertation topic may (or may not) require gray literature. Consult your faculty and your librarian.
