Abstract

Improving the academic information literacy of overseas postgraduate students studying in China is an important part of the postgraduate education. It has been noticed that the review section has become the bottleneck of the quality of both graduate degree theses and dissertations. The use of rich and complicated information sources to conduct an efficient, accurate and comprehensive literature review of the dissertation/thesis has become an urgent problem to be solved. According to the questionnaires, for the information quality and the review writing ability of graduate students, a total of 123 Ph.D. and Master’s Degree students studying at the Harbin Engineering University were randomly selected as research samples, and several solutions were proposed for the problems arising from the investigation results.
