Internet Research Skills

Internet Research Skills is a clear, concise guide to effective online research for social science and humanities students. The first half of the book deals with publications online, devoting separate chapters to academic articles, books, official publications and news sources, which form the core secondary sources for social science research. The second half of the book deals with the open web, a vast and confusing realm of materials, many of which have no direct print counterpart. The Third Edition has been updated throughout and now includes: • Coverage of cutting edge online services as well as newly developed approaches to using online materials • A new chapter on organizing your research and internet research methods • Additional material on the use of social networks for research • Illustrations, examples and short exercises to help you put what you learn into practice Internet Research Skills is an invaluable guide for undergraduate students carrying out research projects and for graduate students working on theses and dissertations.
