CTR workshop series for students and young researchers
Session 3 “Digital Tools to improve Research: Managing information, synthesizing literature, and writing academic papers”
The aim of this webinar is to share information on practical, open access digital tools that can be used by postgraduate students and early career researchers (ECRs) in their research and writing process. Specifically, in helping researchers to organize and synthesize information for their literature review, and support in generating ideas for the research writing process. Postgraduate students and ECRs tend to face many challenges in organizing and synthesizing the extensive information that they have read upon. They may not know where to start and how to manage the information, data and ideas that they have. An extensive number of digital tools exist, but may only cause researchers to feel overwhelmed and confused in identifying which digital tools are most helpful in their current early stage of research. Therefore, this webinar will explain the benefits of using digital tools in research and provide examples that will help postgraduate students and ECRs to be aware of easy to use, easy to learn, practical and open access digital tools for their literature review and final research writing. Two tools that will be briefly discussed will be Obsidian and Zotero alongside an introduction to the ‘zettelkasten’ method for knowledge management. At the end of the session, participants will have the awareness and confidence to trial run the open access tools in their own research process and have a better understanding on how to structure the information and data they have.
