So it’s time for you to start writing academic papers? No need to worry, there are a huge number of resources for you to choose from, and we will go over a few to help get you started.
This is the list you usually receive at the start of your course that is advisable in addition to what you are assigned. Go through this list and see what you can find that will be most helpful and relevant to what you are writing about. Also, it is recommended you read some of these books as part of the course because they can help give you a deeper perspective as well as a different viewpoint.
This wasn’t listed first because it is difficult enough to make an academic paper stand out, and you run the risk that many other students will be using the same resources. This is helpful simply because you have likely read and analyzed these texts. Recommend for when perhaps you don’t have as much time for research as you’d like.
Articles, Journals, Additional Books
This is where you will find the items that may give differing opinions, and with articles and journals that tend to be published more often than books on a particular subject, you are more likely to find the latest thoughts on a subject and sometimes you might be fortunate enough to find something that is written about change with regard to your desired subject matter. Depending on your topic you may find newer, more relevant case studies and up to date data.
With the internet, you can research the more obscure items you may not have access to, as well as utilising your professor or teaching assistant; they are valuable resources, and may know of things you can use that you may not be aware of.
