The first step in creating a literature review is, of course, finding the literature to review. A good literature review should be as comprehensive as necessary to identify all of the major works and debates on your research subject. Here are some tips for going beyond basic keyword searching in order to find as many sources as you can.
Use these links to identify a database that's relevant to your research question.
One way to find relevant articles is to raid the bibliography or works cited section. The three references below are cited in Rob Litchfield's article "Brainstorming Reconsidered: A goal-based view."
How do you get to the full-text of the items? You may need to use the library's homepage for this.
Amabile, T. M. 1996. Creativity in context. Boulder, CO: Wesview Press.
Dennis, A. R. & Williams, M. L. 2003. Electronic brainstorming: Theory, research, and future directions. In P. B. Paulus & Nijstad, B. A. (Eds.), Group creativity: Innovation through collaboration: 160-178. New York: Oxford University Press.
Dugosh, K. L., & Paulus, P. B. 2005. Cognitive and social comparison processes in brainstorming. Journal of Experimantal Social Psychology, 41: 313-320.
So you have an article in your hands, and you've already raided the bibliography for citations. But these are all older sources the author used. How do you know who cited this article? Try one of the following search tools to find "future" sources that cite the article you already have. Or use this article as an example.
