Research is the primary method through which we can find new information and learn about new ideas. The ability to do research is vital in both the academic and professional world.
Research is also a process that requires planning and has many stages. By investing time in finding appropriately detailed and relevant sources you can make your arguments more convincing.
If you're struggling to find relevant content related to your topic, consider ways of rethinking your topic so that you can find what you need.
