The Research Process

A+

Step Four: Present

Step Three: Analyze and Evaulate

Step Two: Find Information

Step One: Identify and Articulate


refworks


RefWorks

  • Create an account on a virtual server

  • Create folders for storing citations

  • Add citations

    • RefGrabIt

    • Import from databases/indexes

  • Format in-text citations; create bibliography


Refworks Login


  • RefWorks does NOT create perfect Reference Lists

  • You need to proofread!

RefWorks Group Code = RWUOIT


Importing to Refworks

  • Depends on the database you are using!

  • Instructions for various databases can be found here:

    http://www.uoit.ca/EN/library/main/research_help/404822/404831/refworks.html


Step One

  • Determine the nature and extent of information needed…


Nature?

  • Books

  • Articles

    • Magazines

    • Newspapers

    • Journals

      • Peer-reviewed?

  • Government Reports

  • Statistics

  • Laws, Cases


Extent?

  • Crimes against children

    • Ages of the children

    • Types of crimes

    • So what?

  • Organized crime

    • What kind of organized crime?

    • Specific gang?

    • So what?


Clearly, we will need to NARROW our topic.

How?


types

school

initiatives

bullying

ages

children

psychology

abuse

Impact on

Dev’t

sexual

parent

extent of information needed


Use a TRUSTED SOURCE to get an overview of your topic.

Textbook

Reference Book

News or Magazine Website

Why NOT a wiki?

So What?

  • Draft your THESIS STATEMENT

  • “Victims of childhood bullying are more likely to demonstrate aggressive behaviour as adults.”


Keywords

  • Childhood

  • Bullying

  • Aggressive

  • Adults

  • Behaviour (Behavior??)


Step Two

  • Access information effectively and efficiently….


Next Steps?

  • Google/Internet?

  • Google Scholar?

  • What happens when Google or other search engines are insufficient or not helpful for your topic?


About Google Scholar

  • Ensure your preferences are set to include the UOIT Library.

    • Allows you to look up full text of articles in our databases

    • Will link to our library catalogue to look up books

    • Direct import into RefWorks (citation manager) http://www.uoit.ca/EN/library/Tools/refworks.html


Click on “Scholar Preferences”


2. Be sure to Save

  • Find the UOIT Library and check the checkbox

Literature searching in the library


Library Catalogue

  • 50-100 words to describe each book

    • How many pages does a book typically have?

  • Search fields:

    • Title

    • Author

    • Publisher

    • Subject terms

  • We are NOT searching (usually):

    • Chapter titles

    • Summaries

    • Contents


  • Journal Indexes

    • Contain references to articles

    • May or may not be subject-specific

    • Some contain full text

    • “FindIt” feature links databases together to find full text content


    Simple Article Searching


    Library Databases do not use the same language as Google!

    • Need to use Boolean Searching…


    Translating a Google Search

    • Google: childhood bullying aggressive adult

    • Library: childhood AND bullying AND aggressive AND adult

    • Better Library Search:

      Child*

      AND bully* or bullied

      AND aggressive or violent

      AND adult*


    Boolean Searching: A Summary

    • Use AND to connect unique concepts

      • bullying AND children

    • Use OR to connect synonyms

      • bully OR bullied

    • Use * to include all endings on a root word

      • adult*


    Boolean Searching: A Game!

    • Practice your Boolean Searching by playing “Snakes and Ladders”…

    • http://faculty.uoit.ca/pratt/Doyle/Boolean%20Snakes%20and%20Ladders/index.htm

      • Start with subject guides

      • Popular vs. scholarly

      • Bias
