News and Popular Sources in Research

Analyzing contemporary issues often asks researchers to examine books for historical or well-established information and context, academic and scholarly journals for recent research findings, and current or emerging information. Newspapers and popular sources like magazines often provide the most up-to-date perspectives on contemporary causes and messages, and can be used to enrich scholarly research.

It is important to be critical of news, popular sources, and web-based information, and to consider it in the context of your scholarly research. Use the SIFT Test before including information from sources on this page in your research - it is a quick way to consider accuracy and bias.
