Do you want to be able to assess the relevance of a research paper? These sessions will show you what to look for when conducting a Critical Appraisal.
You can enroll for either or for both sessions. There will be a 10 minute break during each session.
The common aims of the sessions are:
- Understanding the principles of quantitative/qualitative critical appraisal
- Awareness of critical appraisal tools
- practice appraising a research paper
The practice element for each session involves reading through a research paper (supplied in advance) so you will need to book for each session. Contact the library on x8016.
We can also organize a session at a time to suit your group.
These are quick introductions to some of the resources available to you. You can drop
by the Cyber Room anytime during the hour that the sessions run.
E-journal access is about finding out if you have full text for a given reference and getting access to it from work or from home.
