The Purpose of Research Update 2

  1. To hone your research discovery skills
  2. To identify the difference between peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed scientific literature
  3. To build a bank of articles supporting your research topic, literally by saving pdf versions to your OneDrive

Keep in mind that all of these skills are broadly applicable to your career as a student of science and beyond, and you will use these skills outside of Seminar and the First-Year Symposium.
