COIS20064  Scholarly Information Sources

A vital component of scientific communication is the ability to identify sources of information on a subject that is being researched and locate pertinent references. In this way timely information can be shared with other researchers and released to the public. Through the knowledge gained in this subject, students will be in a position to substantially improve the quality of scientific communication. They will be aware of the current limitations of information retrieval systems and the advances that are being made with information technology. The understanding of these issues will enhance the students' ability to accurately communicate scientific and technological information. In addition, by conducting online searches in their chosen thesis topic, they will develop a proposal and have a detailed understanding of the literature in this domain.
