The PH4110 Research Review begins before the Moodle Roll-over and your registration onto the 4th year programme. This twiki page is meant to bridge the gap until you have access to the moodle page later on.

You were emailed the post exam tutorial, but it can be downloaded PH4100_and_PH4110__introduction_2015.ppt.

Enrol for the Research Review Turnitin class at https://www.submit.ac.uk,

Class ID: 2918912

Enrolment password: PH4110-2015

After the first meeting you were assigned a supervisor and now you should be actively thinking about your topic.

Searching for Papers

Information that will help you to search for and access the articles you need for your review, including details of how to get an inter library loan are contained in this document, Article_Search.docx.

WRITING THE REVIEW

It is not compulsory to use Latex but most of the articles that you have been reading for your review would have been prepared using Latex.

Information about how to install and use Latex can be found here:

http://www.rhul.ac.uk/physics/informationforcurrentstudents/computerskills/latex/latex-windows.aspx

Journals produce Latex style files and information for the authors on how to prepare their articles such that that confirm to the standard required by the journal. One such style file that would be appropriate for a research review article is that adopted by the AIP journal Reviews of Modern Physics. Using this as an example will ensure that your document will reach the presentational standard required.

Here is the style guide for the Journal Review of Modern Physics, rmpguide.pdf, further information including downloads of the REVTEX style file that will make a latex document conform to the same rules can be found here:
