Reviewing Literature – FREE online course for doctoral students

The MOOC has an upgrade option, but otherwise it’s free to doctoral researchers.

Emily Purser & The FutureLearn team have collaborated to produce this online course.

Here’s an extract that explains what to expect:

Improve your ability in a fundamental part of research: a literature review

Many students are required to write a critical review of current academic literature in their area of interest – researchers, postgraduates and undergraduates. Developing a great critical review is vital, but not always taught.

In this course, you will be guided through this complex process step-by-step, seeing examples, finding information and developing useful questions that will help you plan, draft and refine a critical discussion of what is and is not yet known about your topic.
