This is part 1 of a two part assignment, due in Week 4. Part 1 (this part) is due on Tuesday by class time, and part 2 (a separate assignment) is due by class time Thursday. You will submit a link to a Google doc here on Canvas for this part of the assignment.
This week we are focused on performing a literature search.
Setting your weekly objectives
Before you begin, read through this assignment and Thursday's assignment and identify the tasks/objectives you will complete this week. Record these at the start of your log for the week.
Lit Search Part 1: The lay of the land
This part of the assignment starts with the paper you read for week 2. You will search the literature related to this paper and try to get a better understanding of the field as a whole.
Create a Google document in your group drive folder, and link it from your log.
Then, use the techniques we used in class on Thursday of week 3 to perform a literature search, and record the answers to the following prompts in this new document:
- List the 2-3 primary publication venues related to the topic of the paper you read. These may be conferences or journals. For each, give your reasoning about what makes you think this is a primary publication venue.
- Make a clustered* list of at least 20 (more is better!) papers from the venues you cited in part 1 that you think are worth exploring that seem to either build on the work from your original paper or present an alternate solution to the same problem. Most of these papers must be from authors other than the original authors of your paper. In your list, include at least the title and authors of these papers and a link to each paper, as well as a short note about how the paper relates to your original paper (1-2 sentences).
*Cluster (group) these papers by how related they are to each other. E.g. some will extend the work in one direction while others will go in a different direction. Try to put some high level order in the related work space.
Note that you do not have to have read the whole paper to make this list. Read titles and abstracts only.
Submit the link to the document where you have placed your answers as your submission here.
