What is Literature Search?

A literature search is a well thought out and organised search for all of the literature published on a topic. A well-structured literature search is the most effective and efficient way to locate sound evidence on the subject you are researching. Evidence may be found in books, journals, government documents and the internet.

Searching on the Internet

To find content from online, use only government or educational institute sites.  The URLs of these sites ends on .gov or .edu.
