As you begin the research process it is important to understand that there are different types of sources. It is important to have a good understanding of the different sources and which specific ones you should be using for each of your assignments.
Learn about the different sections that make up a scholarly article by rolling over each highlighted section. Click on each of the sections for more information.
When reading a scholarly/peer reviewed article, it is ok to skip around. You may want to read the introduction and the discussion sections first, then go back and read the remaining sections for more detail.

- You don't have to read the entire article start to finish. Look at the different sections independently. You will find some sections easier to understand and pull facts from then others.
- Read critically. Is there any bias? Look at sample size or population to see how the data was collected and analyzed.
- If you come across a word you aren't familiar with stop and look it up. Researchers use a lot of terminology that you might not yet be familiar with.
- Look at the references to find additional research.
