CE 498: Research in Civil Engineering

A guide to finding, organizing and reviewing literature for a potential conference paper.

Reviewing the Literature Means ALL the Literature

When you need to include every article written on a topic for your literature review, there is no single place to look to make sure you've found everything. Scopus and Web of Science track how much papers are cited, and it is by this citation analysis that you can get a sense of what people have written and what, based on the citations, are considered foundational papers in the field. You should do your search in both to make sure you're catching everything, as, while there is a fair amount of overlap, they draw from different collections of publications.
