Trying to determine, from my reading, which concepts/articles/texts should end up being in my literature review or in a background theories section. A concept map is helping, but I’m still a little stuck. Should a definition of sustainability beÂ background theory? I think it should…. but what if I’m wrong? Self doubt you are a pain.

It’s time to buckle down now and get started on some literature searching. I know that I’ve been teaching people how to do literature searching for such a long time, but now that it’s my turn, it’s a little intimidating.
So, from what I used to teach people, here is what I need to do:
- Leave no stone unturned
- Start with generic Library databases and construct some search strings that bring back results
- Set search alerts
- Broaden search to other databases (this won’t be hard considering that the UniSA library only has TWO databases listed under the subject heading of “Library“).
- Identify any key/useful journal titles and subscribe to table of contents alerts.
See, not that hard really is it?
