Searching and Reviewing Scientific Literature

  • Martin Trauth
  • Elisabeth Sillmann


This chapter is on searching relevant literature, reviewing and ranking published books and journal articles, and extracting relevant information in the form of text, data, or graphs. In this context, the focus of our book is on Internet resources and literature in an electronic format such as the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), rather than on printed journals and books in a library. Although some of you might have a printed version of this book in your hands, most people have probably taken advantage of Springer’s eBook Collection to read the digital version on a computer.
