Following Leads to Other Relevant Research

We suggested previously that you look for books or articles containing bibliographies. Here's why: Use the bibliographies in the items you select to lead you to other materials.

  • Watch for authors or works being cited frequently. These clearly would be important sources to find.
  • It is often useful to look for other works written by the authors cited in the sources you find.
  • Remember that authors of books commonly write articles, too, and vice versa.
