17 Oct How to use Google Scholar to find journal articles | Essay Tips



My second essay tips video. Conducting a comprehensive literature review is an important part of any research project. Here are my tips for how to use Google Scholar effectively to quickly and easily find the academic papers, journal articles or books you need to write that essay or complete that dissertation.

This is the second in a series of videos I’m hoping to produce while undertaking my PhD at the University of Exeter on tips for students at university or college whether undergraduate, postgraduate or otherwise.

    Another useful feature of Google Scholar is that it allows you to see different versions of the same article. I've used this feature when the first link that Google Scholar gives you does not allow you to read/download the article immediately.
