As well as tutorial support for researchers, we offer:
Workshops aimed at research students, including managing your literature search, using EndNote to manage your references, using Microsoft Word for thesis creation and Copyright for researchers.
Searching skills is introduced as a practical activity in your Research Methods module. Example literature reviews are included in a special issue (48/8 from 2018) of the International Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics Management (IJPDLM). Hochrein et al. (2015) reviewed 121 literature reviews in supply chain management providing a list of lessons learned in Section 5 of the article.
Recent reviews in supply chain management adopt the processes of Tranfield et al. (2003), Denyer and Tranfield (2009) or Briner and Denyer (2012) in producing their literature reviews. You can follow an adapted systematic literature review process for your review:
A. Formulate the research question.
B. Locating and selecting relevant studies.
C. Study selection.
D. Analysis and synthesis.
E. Reporting the findings.
