Research Paper Writing: Tips for Finding Credible Information for Your Research, Easily And Quickly

Success in research paper writing requires use of wide range of relevant information to expound on the topic and thesis statement. Learning how to find relevant research information easily and quickly eases research writing and improves speed.

Many students have the general feeling that, research paper writing is never enjoyable, because of the difficulty in finding relevant research information. By far, finding research information is difficult than writing itself.

Writing is putting down and organizing information and data you already gathered. The major concerns surrounding finding of research information include where to get relevant books, journals and other texts or electronic work; and how to narrow down from large pool of material resources to only best a few. Other issues of concern in research paper writing are whether to read all available documents; and how to combine research ideas and/or theories discussed in a large number of resources to achieve research objectives or answer research questions. The following tips answer to such concerns.

Tip 1: Mind what instructions say about information you must use for research

Professors tailor research and research paper writing tasks according to their desire, through instructions. They may restrict you on what resources and how many resources to use. Others specify period of publication of works to focus on. Whether there are advantages of disobeying or not, just obey. By obeying, for instance, you may avoid getting an avalanche of research information, which makes it difficult to narrow down to the most useful information for research.

Tip 2: Mind diverse sources of information, but more importantly, the most useful

Traditional means of finding research information included use of libraries. It still works. Most students know how important it is to use reading lists issued in class by lecturers. Do not ignore them because you just don’t have time for any other book, or text in the world. They just make research paper writing easy and fast.

If the professor directs on the source of information, do not rush to use your own source. The professor may have prior knowledge of how difficult it is to find information in that topic, so, consider the piece of advice my son/daughter. This is the best approach for those handling rare topics, and from their experience, know how helpful and considerate their lecturer/professor or tutor is.

Everyone knows how powerful the internet is as a source of information. In fact, it is the most useful today. There are books, research papers, articles, periodicals and useful webpages updated every day. More importantly, there are free and paid libraries to look up information for research.

Tip 3: Differentiate between credible and non-credible sources of information

The right term is credibility. It helps find good information for research. If a resource is peer-reviewed, academic and based on research, it passes the credibility test. If the lecturer specifies the period of publication of resources to use, take note of the cap placed on the publication dates and adhere. Other issues to consider when seeking a good research resource are based on your own interpretation. Point is; don’t go for resources with errors in content, those biased in discussions, and select those that cite sources of information in them. Make sure the resource is also available for your readers: by the way, your lecturer may just demand a copy of it later.
