To explain TRAIL participants how to write a literature review for a scientific journal in the TIL domain.

Those who do not aim to write a journal paper but, for example, a chapter in their thesis are also welcome. Journal papers have the highest ambition level and are the point of departure.

This course helps you to write a literature review paper. It explains types of literature reviews, the structure of literature review papers, gives tips and tricks, and discusses some example papers.

After day 1 you draft a literature review, or at least its outline. Students commend on each other’s drafts. On day 2 we share and discuss experiences, and the way to address review comments. On day 3 participants present their literature review paper and others comment.
