Objective of Tutorial
  • Help you do your research
  • Objective of Module BN4101R as taken from IVLE
    This module consists mainly of a research-based
    project carried out under the supervision of one
    or more faculty members. It introduces students
    to the basic methodology of research in the
    context of a problem of current research
    interest
  • This tutorial is designed to help you achieve THE
    objective

5
Learning Outcomes
  • Be better at doing research
  • How to analyse your FYP research topic
  • use the best source/s (better than Google
    Scholar) to look for current information
  • Understand citations in reading list, etc.
  • Know more about LINC
  • Know more about Library services

6
Outline
  • Doing research
  • How to analyse your FYP research topic
  • Indexes of current information
  • Demonstrations
  • Using Engineering Village 2
  • LION (Library Instruction ONline )

  • Library services E-Forms
  • Subject guide in Library Portal
  • Understanding citations
  • LINC

7
Research Topic
  • Use of biomaterials in
  • dental applications

8
Search Statement
1. Identify concepts
2.. Think of alternative term/s for each concept

3. Formulate your search statement
biomaterial AND (dental OR tooth OR teeth)
9
Boolean Operators
  • OR is used to indicate that either terms may be
    present
  • AND is used to indicate that both terms must be
    present

10
Truncation/Stemming
  • Biomaterial retrieves biomaterial and
    biomaterials
  • Fluorid retrieves fluoride, fluorides,
    fluoridation, etc.

11
More on Search Statement
  • If your search statement retrieves no records
  • E.g. you need articles on membrane reactors, but
    you cant find hits
  • Use a broader concept/term like Bioreactor
    instead of specifically membrane reactor
  • Look through references listed at the end of such
    articles

12
Learning Outcome 1 How to analyse your FYP
research topic Summary
  • Identify concepts
  • Think of alternative term/s for each concept
  • Formulate your search statement using
  • Boolean Operators
  • for truncation
  • Search under broader concept if necessary

13
Learning Outcomes
