Finding Updates to Research

There are a few ways to find updates to research:

  • Search in Western OneSearch for the important and unique information to that research. Topic keywords are very important.
  • Sometimes updates will have the same researchers attached (sometimes they will not, though...be aware of this).
  • Look at the funding organizations and/or institutions involved with the research. Often, older research will be referenced in the updates.
  • Use Google Scholar to find the research you want to update. Look at the 'cited by' feature and investigate if any of these papers are updates or mention updates.
  • Sometimes, researchers will list their work on a professional website (basically, an electronic vitae or portfolio).
  • Sometimes, publishers and databaases will indicate that the article has an update and will link you to the update.
