How To Do Research

Missing Information

Look for missing pieces of information in the sources you have. Is there information you need that you haven't found? Or that isn't available?

Do you have:

Background sources?

These offer evidence for general statements and context for other sources.

Current sources?

What counts as current will depend on your topic, but your sources should be up-to-date.

Academic and fact-based sources?

These establish credibility for your argument.

Statistical Sources?

These provide detail and data to strengthen your argument.
