How to find information quickly and efficiently
Here are a few suggestions:
a. Define specific objectives: What exactly are you looking for? are you interested in the subject in general or in a specific aspect? (e.g. are you interested in the studies on reliability of data transmission or reliability of data transmission in railway systems? Perhaps you are looking for something more specific - reliability of data transmission in railway systems at high train speeds!
b. Decide which time period should be covered by your search: The current year? the last five years? and how soon you need this information.
c. Which sources are going to be most relevant? Should you start your search using a general source such as SCOPUS database, or a more selective one such as COMPENDEX? You may need to start with a highly specialized source such as ENGnetBASE!
