finding research

related to your topic

where should you search?

tell your classmates

Search for specific library books, ebooks, articles and films

 but go beyond sofia to search for topics

use your WSDB 292 LIBRARY GUIDE

Reminder:

example: multiple ebsco databases

I am interested in Carol J. Adams and her iconic but controversial feminist work, the Sexual Politics of Meat. Critics claim that she ignores the relational aspects of veganism, and of eating, and that the discussions around her work lack an intersectional lense.

...more examples

In the smaller and more specialized Gender Studies Database I can enter a broader, less focused search and browse the results for relevant ideas.

In sociology databse SocINDEX, I can look for otherexamples of research that has employed content analysis to similar subjects .

now how can you access / download those articles?

what about

THAT literature review?

use your WSDB 292 LIBRARY GUIDE

Most peer-reviewed articles  include a literature review within their text, even when it is not separatey labeled as such

this paragraph is part of a literature review:

what about

google scholar?

findit@concordia TIP:

"cited by" TIP:

referencing &
citationS


For your assignments, you need to use the  CHICAGO citation style.

 

What about automatic citation tools

instead of style guides ?

a) citation generators (Ex: those provided within databases like SOCindex or Google Scholar)
b) citation management tools (ex: ZOTERO)

* Make sure to  double check your generated citations - they are not always correct! Use the Library's CHICAGO citation style guides to make sure all the required elements of the citation are present and correctly formatted.

or move on to: ZOTERO

* Make sure to  double check your generated citations - they are not always correct! Use the Library's CHICAGO citation style guides to make sure all the required elements of the citation are present and correctly formatted.

Once those two steps are completed and everything is installed, go to your favourite library database or to Google Scholar, and search for articles on a topic.

 

At the top right corner of your browser  you should see an indication that the Zotero connector is installed:

If you don't see the folder icon (or an icon that looks like a sheet of paper or a book) click on the extensions icon (looks like a puzzle piece) and make sure that Zotero is PINNED.  It will turn blue.

To save items to you Zotero library of citations, click on the folder icon (or paper or book  icon  if you are looking at only one citation)

By default ZOTERO tries to save items to your Zotero library in the desktop software you installed.

Zotero desktop library:

Once citations are saved in your Zotero library you can create a bibliography:

  1. select the items you want to include
  2. select Create Bibliography from items
  3. select a citation style
  4. copy-paste the citations into your Word document

...OR you can insert citations and a bibliography directly into documents via your word processing software:
