One of the fundamental drivers of scientific progress is research integration and synthesis, which is essentially beneficial for developing research vision. Hence, literature reviews prove to be highly useful to many researchers at all academic stages. Analysing the literature and writing reviews for a thesis, article or project proposal can be sometimes challenging to fresh early career scientists. For a review paper even greater attention must be given to the methodological approach to conduct a reproducible and thorough review of the existing scientific literature.

In this short course participants will be given an overview of (literature) review types and learn about existing guidelines for conducting reviews. They will be introduced to available R packages for literature search and conducting systematic reviews. The course will also cover some insights from an editor’s perspective with helpful tips on how to write a review paper.

This session is organized in cooperation with the Young Hydrologic Society (http://younghs.com/).
