A few links for MSc students working on their literature review

I wrote down a few bullet points that might be useful for MSc students working on their literature review and I want to share them.

A few things that might be interesting for you as a student working on a literature review.

(1) Please don’t read the whole paper in detail.
Abstract, partly the introduction, conclusions, and have a look at figures – and if so, a few interesting sections, and
The links explain that nicely:


(2) make a literature-review-table such that you can (a) easily go back to the papers, (b) cite them quickly. Also, please think carefully about the columns of the table (methods, used radars, frequency bands, participants, classes in the dataset, etc. pp.).

(3) If you are writing: Please don’t make it fancy in the first instance — What do I mean? Don’t tweak word-by-word and stuck too long on certain paragraphs. Write the sections up; Then, tweak the paragraphs afterward, if you are sure that the section remains forever; sometimes paragraphs get changed or removed later, then all the final tweaks were useless.


Best regards,
