The Research Struggle: Get Your Go To Sources

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 5.42.58 PM

See this isn’t just an undergrad problem. Publishing essays and books also runs into the WIkipedia problem, which is that we can find a lot of information on something we want to study but no perspectives that cut to the heart of the matter. That’s why it’s imperative you have your go-to sources. For all things psychological mine are Psychology Today and Scientific American. Then I read them rhetorically because I’m a rhetorician and not a psychologist. But, unfortunately, there is no Rhetoric Today…well, until I start it anyway.
