Literature reviews can be conducted as background research for an empirical inquiry or as a stand-alone piece. It is not infrequent that PhD students and even senior researchers cannot find their way through a vast amount of literature available for a specific topic or, on the contrary, get stuck with only few publications at hand. The goal of this module is to provide practical tools to efficiently design and perform a literature review. We will pay particular attention to bibliometric analysis tools, as these are especially useful when dealing with a big number of academic entries. The VosViewer software will be used to show how to perform bibliometric analysis.
