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.
This custom Google portal searches the web for scholarly literature.
