Any Research Tips?

Recommended Posts

Well ive written the majority of my physics EE based on a practical I did, and now I need sources and such to stick in the bibliography. I have a few, but does anyone have any tips for finding sources in general, for any subject, Im having the same problem for history coursework and other subjects. Are Internet sources frowned upon alot, and where can I find reliable internet sources?

Well the way I found all my sources for my EE was by using my brother's uni's database of journal articles, so if you have a sibling or friend at uni you could ask them for their username and password.

yes our teachers said it is best to use the internet as little as possible, and try using books, articles, newspapers, first hand interviews that kind of stuff, and make it varied, not just sticking to one method of research.

Scholarly journal articles found online are reliable resources. If you can gain any access to a university library, that would be great. My IBC arranged an IB trip to go to a university and use their library for a day, it was really helpful.

Also, your local library (if you're registered there) should have their own internet databases that would be useful. You should have more books/newspaper articles/journal articles etc than internet sources because it looks bad if all of your sources are from the internet.
