Topic Details


Attend this Shop Talks session to learn how to use the new Sage Navigator Tool (described as a "Social Sciences Literature Review Tool") to find seminal research in various disciplines and fields of study. Related sources like Web of Science and Scopus can also help you find the most cited sources. If you will be writing a literature review, this Shop Talks session is ideal for beginning your search!

Seminal research, sometimes referred to as pivotal or landmark studies, are articles that initially presented an idea of great importance or influence within a particular discipline or field of study. Seminal articles are highly cited in the research, so you are likely to see these sources frequently cited in other journal articles, books, dissertations, etc.
