I can spend hours looking for articles online. I love browsing around and searching on Google Scholar for articles to download and read. However, I begin to feel overwhelmed once I realize that must read all the articles I’ve saved. It certainly takes a lot of time to do it correctly, even for faculty. In this chapter, we will learn how to understand and evaluate the sources you find. We will also review how your research questions might change as you start reading in your area of interest and learn more about your topic.
