Finding and evaluating sources
Finding sources to be used during research is important in formulating appropriate research and evaluating it will determine whether it fits with the right criteria. Evaluating sources will help one to determine whether the information is accurate and credible. During this study, I have learned several things about finding sources of research. (Nadelson, L. (2021). When choosing a source, one has to work with something interesting to them since it will be easier to find ideas for something that one is conversant with. Sources should be from academic journals to make it easier for referencing and future studies. The language used in a chosen source should be easy to understand and free from hard words and vocabulary. The content in the chosen source should be just enough to provide all answers needed in the research and not too long to make one tired of researching on it.
Both primary and secondary sources can be used during research to make ones’ work easier. Primary sources can come from other documents from the past or other research articles while secondary sources are obtained from analyzing and working on the primary sources to get more useful information. (Logsdon, A. (2019). The research topic to be worked on determines whether both secondary and primary sources are needed for the research. Other sources may include print media sources like books that are nonfiction, periodicals, and reference works.These sources can be used as starting points to steer one in the right direction while doing the research. Internet sources are also available and one gets all the information they need online. The sources chosen should be timely and have information that conforms with the current trends and latest information but when doing historical research, ancient sources have to be consulted to obtain accurate information. My research is going on well and I have not encountered any challenges so far because I chose research that I am well conversant with and is easy to do.
