Citation Analysis – Discovering New Uses Within Systematic Reviews: York, UK

Citation analysis tools have been available for decades and already have a role within systematic reviews. However, with the introduction of new tools and more access to citation indexes, citation analysis may offer new opportunities for assisting with systematic reviews, particularly reviews of complex questions where searchers may not always be confident that their subject searches are exhaustive.

This one-day workshop, organised by the York Health Economics Consortium (YHEC), will describe some of the new citation analysis tools as well as new uses of citation analysis tools, from the perspective of identifying research for systematic reviews. Most of the afternoon will be spent on step by step exercises using citation analysis tools so that course participants will become familiar with approaches to searching, extracting and analysing citations.
