Objectives Apply research methods to locate information on a given topic Explain how search engines are used Describe Internet research strategies Identify strategies for evaluating resources Describe different ways to document sources Assignment Overview This assignment allows the student to locate desired research information for their research paper in Assignment 2  (Links to an external site.) . Deliverables A 200-word paragraph on what you learn about effective academic research, including challenges you face in locating sources or relevant information for your paper. Follow MLA formatting to list your name, course name, and date on the top left of the first page and your last name and page number in the header on the top right of all pages (explore the Purdue OWL  (Links to an external site.)  website for examples and review the MLA checklist in Step 3). Identifying information, page numbers, title, and ‘Works Cited’ page(s) are not included in the word count. A bibliography with no fewer than 10 sources cited. Your assignment will be graded according to the Lumerit Course Grading Rubric  (Links to an external site.) . Please reference this rubric when completing each assignment. Step 1: Expand your research Conduct searches on your topic using academic research websites. Your local public library provides premium discipline-specific research database access with membership. See the list below for open access research resources: Google Scholar: http://scholar.google.com/  (Links to an external site.) Database of Open Access Journals: https://doaj.org/subjects  (Links to an external site.) List of Open Public Access Research Databases: https://www.library.ucsb.edu/search-research/free-databases  (Links to an external site.) Fields of Knowledge: http://fieldsofknowledge.com/index.html  (Links to an external site.) Use the bibliographies of any articles you find useful to locate other relevant sources. Repeat any of the steps described until you have collected 20-30 potential sources. Step 2: Compose a working bibliography After reviewing each source, compose a working bibliography in the MLA documentation style. Your working bibliography should include no fewer than 10 sources. A working bibliography is just a draft of the final version that will be included in your final paper. Please review pp. 374-375 of The Little Brown Compact Handbook  (Links to an external site.)  to learn how to create a working bibliography. If the source can be accessed online, list the DOI or URL of the website, even if the citation format doesn’t require it. The aim of a working bibliography is to help you quickly access your sources. See “Important Note on the Use of URLs in MLA  (Links to an external site.) ” on the Purdue website for more information. This is an assignment you will want to keep in your personal files as well as submitting feedback. Step 3: Reflect on the research process In no more than 200 words, discuss what you have learned about effective academic research. Include a list of challenges that you faced in locating sources for your paper. Review the MLA checklist  (Links to an external site.)  to make sure you have formatted your paper correctly. Before submitting your paper, review this video  (Links to an external site.)  about Unicheck to ensure that all citations are formatted correctly. Submit your draft to obtain your first Unicheck report (this video  (Links to an external site.)  will show you how). Unicheck highlights anything that is either plagiarized or incorrectly cited. Correct your draft based on your Unicheck report, then run your essay through the Unicheck report again. You may obtain up to three Unicheck reports. Submit your final draft only when it shows a high originality score.
