When scholars set out to advance a specific line of research, the synthesis of past research findings through a literature review is critical. When a field is very rich and dense, the process of analyzing literature can be a daunting task and searching for an appropriate technique for literature reviews remain a challenge. In recent years, advanced techniques such as bibliometrics coupled with science mapping are increasingly applied in research to gain insights into the intellectual structure and trends of a broad academic discipline. However, the challenge still exists in exploring, organizing, and producing the literature review in a readable and understandable format. 

This session will help you understand scientific ways of doing bibliometric literature reviews. The session will specifically answer the following objectives:

  1. What is the role of bibliometrics and the different techniques used in a literature review 
  2. How to use Scopus metrics in combination with bibliometrics 
  3. How to use VOS viewer software for mapping a discipline of the literature
  4. How to code data and perform literature reviews using a table matrix presentation of the review using a timeline series
  5. How to identify research gaps and emerging trends in a discipline  6. How to use the bibliometric reviews to publish as chapters or journal articles. 

The workshop includes complementary lunch. 

Max no. of participants: 30.
