Workshop The smart way to find literature for your paper
Are you looking for reliable academic literature for your paper, article, thesis or dissertation? Would you like to know which (online) sources you can access, such as databases and journals? If so, this workshop is for you. 

Marja Heijer, Master's student in History of Architecture, about this workshop: ‘This workshop has really opened up a world of possibilities for me. I no longer mind the idea of finding literature for my paper and my thesis as much as I did before' 

Data Conversations: Open Data, Open Methods, Reproducible Research
In this Data Conversations researchers from different Faculties, Institutes and disciplines will have a chance to hear and learn from each other about their experiences with opening up data and methods and moving towards truly reproducible research.

Workshop EndNote: create references and a bibliography easily
Save yourself a great deal of time and effort when writing your thesis by using EndNote. With a single click, you can ensure that citations and references are formatted exactly the way you want them.

Workshop Endnote advanced: get more out of Endnote
Maximise the possibilities that Endnote offers! Based on a case study, you will be given the challenge of not only importing your references but managing them as well. Finally, you will follow an actual publication procedure in which your bibliography must comply with very specific standards.
