Research Tip

The resources on the following pages were selected because they are useful resources - qualitative research in social work and the law. The resources include reference e-books, article databases that contain relevant academic peer reviewed journals, and reliable websites. 

  • Your faculty member only wants to see valid, reliable, authoritative, sources for your research.  That means sources written by experts or scholars who have credentials in the field that they are writing about.
  • Google and Wikipedia are usually not the best place to start.  Keep in mind Google will give you thousands of hits but many will not be academically sound. Wikipedia is great for an overall outline of a topic, but content may not be authoritative.
