Literature search methods are most importat, but most neglected

Posted by kshitish on 27 Jul 2013 at 04:35 GMT

Search engines and query-sets are often not specified in the research papers/reviews. Reproducibility of results depends on these details. Unfortunately, many researchers are not even aware of multiple search engines and their relative advantages (for a list and comparative study, see http://precedings.nature.... ).
