Although the seminar is primarily meant for PhD-students who have only just started with their research, it will also provide a lot of interesting information for students in a more mature phase.

The UAntwerp library will explain everything there is to know for PhD-students on databases, electronic journals and internet resources for Law. The seminar discusses possible search strategies and an advanced use of the functionalities of these online information sources.

In addition, citation indexes and impact factors are looked at. Web of Science and/or Scopus is thoroughly scrutinized for this. The Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the University of Antwerp are also discussed.

Specific questions and/or requests to have certain information resources discussed, are always welcome! Send in advance to
