Hardin Open Workshops

The session will offer a framework for conducting a quality health sciences literature review for scholarly projects or publication. Learn tips about how to identify sources, use appropriate search techniques, organize results, and synthesize the body of literature to successfully prepare a review. Key differences in search methodology for reviews in the health sciences will be described, with examples provided. Although introductory material regarding systematic and scoping reviews will be provided, the HOW sessions dedicated to these specific types of reviews are recommended if either of these review types is of interest.


Advance registration is required for Zoom classes, though walk-ins are welcome for in-person classes. Virtual registrants will be emailed the Zoom link 30 minutes before the class time.
