Citation databases

If you find a great article on your topic, you can use a citation database to track down related articles. 


Conference papers are an excellent source of current research, best practices and new innovations in a research area. 

How to keep current

RSS feeds help you keep up to date with information from websites and databases without you having to visit them.

Updates to your favourite websites are 'fed' to you through a feed reader. 

RSS feeds consist of titles and short summaries of the full content on the website, so you can quickly assess whether or not to visit the website to view the full content.

To use feeds you will need to set up a feed reader such as Netvibes.
