The questions of the contest really showed the range of search tools and possibilities of Engineering Village and Compendex. I had used it before for a systematic review during my PhD research project and I found it comprehensive and extremely user-friendly. The contest allowed me to learn a few new search tricks which are great for PhD candidates learning their way in the academic world.
