As part of a project at the University Library we asked researchers to send us any inspiring visualizations being used or produced at KI. We wanted to probe the depths as well as get an idea of the width of the visual side of KI’s ongoing research.
Are you a researcher using or producing any form of visualization in your work? Are you curious to see how your peers visualize their work? We are!
In the last years, we have experienced an explicit trend in systematic reviews. More and more people talks about it. Students are asked to do systematic reviews. Researchers ask us for assistance in systematic literature searching.
In a previous blog post we described how known key articles kan be use to construct and test a search. In this post you can follow an example of a search constructed with key articles as the starting point.
Since Endnote changed their looks for the login page it became quite hard to distinguish between creating an account for the Endnote Online and the desktop version.

Do you ever find it difficult putting information into “your own words” when you use sources in your texts? Here’s some advice on how to paraphrase.
When you use material from sources in your writing you should always provide a clear citation, but you also need to paraphrase the information, “put it in your own words”. But why is that – why not copy the information, word by word?
References to sources are an important part of academic writing. To format the references in a correct and consistent manner is one aspect of this. For this KIBs reference guides are useful tools. Now available in English!
It is time to hand in your term paper and you haven’t even started to write it? You are not the only one having a case of writer’s block. Why not try “Shut up and write”? Students, researchers and writers around the world are doing just that.
The spring semester has begun and you have started working on assignments and theses. Many of you make appointments with the writing tutors from the KI Academic Writing Support to discuss your texts. It is a job with great responsibility, and it's fun!
No, we're not referring to the the fiery Argentine dance but to the title of the ten-thousandth doctoral dissertation at KI. It's written by Per J. Palmgren and is defended today, January 29.
