Review

"Conducting Research Literature Reviews: From the Internet to Paper proves to be such an effective accompaniment to the research process that it serves as a foundational text for the researcher yet provides a clear and thorough blueprint for the graduate student." (Patrick Stearns)

The reason I purchased this text was because it was required for a course I am taking. I have found the contents to be most helpful as I am developing strategies and habits to keep articles and information organized. I will no doubt continue to return to this as a resource even after I complete my work in the PhD Program.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on March 17, 2011
Format: Paperback
The simple fact that this book is in its third edition indicates that there has been enough interest on the part of readers, the author and the publishers in the previous editions to justify bringing the book up to date and adding new materials and techniques. This is good because the internet is constantly growing in size and complexity and learning how to find selectively isolate pertinent material to your project is becoming ever harder. While conducting such research is getting harder, it is also producing research that is more complete, more useful than was possible before.

Dr. Fink is Professor of Medicine and Public Health at UCLA and associated with several other organizations. Her main interests include evaluation and survey research and the conduct of research literature reviews as well as the evaluation of their quality. She knows whereof she speaks.
