I have to do a systematic literature review (SLR) as part of a university course. I have found all search terms etc, but now I have to narrow down the search to research articles. I've been stuck for a week, since each database has its own name for these papers and I'm not sure which publication/source type to select from each database, so they are all correct and comparable.
Below I have listed each database and the different publications they have:
- ACM: "proceedings" vs "journals" vs "research articles"
- Google Scholar: "review articles" vs well, non-review articles
- IEEE Xplore: "conferences" vs "journals"
- ScienceDirect: "research articles" vs "review articles"
- Scopus: "article" vs "conference paper" vs "conference proceeding" vs "journal"
- Springer: "conference paper" vs "article" vs "conference proceeding"
Thanks for any advice. Best regards
PS: If I had to choose, I'd take ACM (research articles), Google Scholar (review articles), IEEE Xplore (journals), ScienceDirect (research articles), Scopus (article), Springer (article)
