Pro tip: when you’re searching on the internet for sources, try limiting your search by type “site:edu” after your search term, in order to limit your returns to university websites.

 

Best Sources for Academic Science Research

Use journals! Academic journals are often more reputable sources of information than what you will find on websites. They are written by experts, and articles are reviewed by other experts in the same field. The research they use is current and reliable.

As with any source of information, be critical and watch for bias. Always triangulate your sources!
