Citation Analysis - Discovering New Uses Within Sys. Reviews

Citation Analysis - Discovering New Uses Within Sys. Reviews



Workshop Outline:

Citation analysis tools have been available for decades and already have a role within systematic reviews. However, with the introduction of new tools and more access to citation indexes, citation analysis may offer new opportunities for assisting with systematic reviews, particularly reviews of complex questions where searchers may not always be confident that their subject searches are exhaustive.

This online workshop will describe some of the new citation analysis tools as well as new uses of citation analysis tools, from the perspective of identifying research for systematic reviews.

This workshop will consist of 2 x 2.5 hour sessions.

Topics covered include:

  • What are citation analysis tools?
  • Demonstrations of using citation analysis tools.
  • Recent research into the use of citation analysis tools for finding studies for systematic reviews.
  • What is the research agenda for citation analysis tools?

Course Trainers:

Julie Glanville, Independent Consultant in Information, Retrieval, UK.

Dr Alison Weightman, Head of Research & Academic Engagement, Director, Specialist Unit for Review Evidence (SURE), Cardiff University.
