This course, organised by the York Health Economics Consortium (YHEC), looks at how to design complex search strategies and complements our training on advanced search techniques. This training event will address the challenges of developing search strategies to capture complex topics in large bibliographic databases using different conceptual combinations and search techniques. The training event will also introduce textual analytic and text mining techniques to demonstrate their potential for strategy design and testing. Participants will undertake exercises using open source visualisation tools to investigate terms within sets of records.
This Advanced Search Strategy course complements YHEC's Advanced Search Techniques course and the Software to Support Systematic Reviews course.
