Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 24, 2016 2:50 PM

Those who search for research will may have already found these search engines.  Don't rely on a single search engine. Triangulate your queries, look for multiple credible sources.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 8, 2017 8:42 AM
Niche-specific content is usually not readily available through regular generic search engines. One example is the academic and scholarly content. While running a search query about an academic topic through a generic search engine such as Google would probably render fairly decent results, it, however, usually takes digging into so much fluff before finally landing on relevant results. This is where having access to topic-specific search engines comes in handy. Such search engines do not only provide specific content tailored to the topic under study but their content is more likely to be reliable and authoritative. To this end, we have compiled this list of excellent academic search engines that teachers, student researchers and academics can use to quickly locate and access scholarly works and publications. We have only included what we believe are the most relevant and popular titles out there.

LITERATURE CITATION VS. LITERATURE REFERENCE -- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

 

When writing a research paper, you must always acknowledge any works or ideas of others that have influenced your experiment, conclusions, or interpretation of the data.


This is done by including a citation in the body of the manuscript and its corresponding literature reference in the Literature Cited section of the paper...

✬✎The Challenge of Citation in Digital Media

✬✎The Challenge of Citation in Digital Media | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

 

We can pick up a style guide like those published by the MLA, APA or Chicago and expect that it will tell us exactly how to format our text, as well as how to formally credit the sources we are referring to.

 

These formats have become so ubiquitous in academic communication, particularly in the classroom, that they seem like divine Law set in stone, rules that we must follow or face the consequences.

 

How, then, do we handle digital media projects, where standards are not so clearly set, and where standard style guides do not seem to be clearly adaptable to visual or aural media?

 

This set-in-stone quality to citation style in print, writing researchers have found, may have some unintended consequences for students.

 

An ongoing research project led by Rebecca Moore Howard and Sandra Jameson, called the Citation Project, has collected essays from nearly 180 students from 16 institutions, and studied their habits of citation.

 

What the researchers have found in the first stage of their project is that students are generally disengaged with the sources that they cite, and that more often than not, students are engaged in "quotation mining" in order to superficially meet assignment requirements.

.

.

.

Instead of trying to impose a print standard format for citation on a medium for which it might not be appropriate, it is better to work from these wider principles and practices that underlie citation to develop formats that are:

Appropriate to the media in which students are composingAppropriate to the contexts and audiences of the assignmentsAppropriate to the forms of inquiry in which students are engaging

✑✑ Writing a Bibliography? Yeah! Here you are some advice ✑✑ BBC - GCSE Bitesize | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

 

This Revision Bite looks at the laws of copyright and the importance of following them

 

 

✎✎ Bibliography advice ✎✎

 

✎ It is best to keep your bibliography up to date as you go through each project.

 

✎ Keep a word processor file called Bibliography open whenever you are working on your project. Add to it whenever you do some research.

 

✎ Remember to list authors and sources in alphabetical order.

 

✎ Remember it is fine to use secondary sources to gather information for your project, but you cannot just reproduce them. It would be plagiarism and could infringe copyright.

 

✎ You don't need to have several pages of references, just put in the things you used. Don't add things just for the sake of it.

 

✎ You will probably need between 10 and 20 references for most projects.

 

✎ Don't put search engines down in your bibliography. It is the information that you found that is the important thing to include.

What are Annotated Bibliographies, and How to Prepare them?

What are Annotated Bibliographies, and How to Prepare them? | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

 

WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY? 

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents.

 

Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation.

 

The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.

 

 

ANNOTATIONS VS. ABSTRACTS

Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes.

 

Annotations are descriptive and critical; they expose the author's point of view, clarity and appropriateness of expression, and authority.

 

 

THE PROCESS

Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.

 

First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items.

 

Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.

 

Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style.

Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article.

 

Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic.

Makayla Matheu's curator insight, March 13, 2016 5:23 PM
I feel that this article is very helpful to many students who are in high school and college. When my professor said we had to write an annotated bibliography the first thought that came to my mind was what is an annotated bibliography? After reading this article I feel that I actually have an idea what an annotated bibliography is. There are steps into how to write an annotated bibliography, such as finding a source first. Also, at the end it shows an example of how one looks like. The article also gives resources just in case if you need more in depth of idea of what an annotated bibliography is or providing other articles to explain what each of the steps in the article are. I think this sources is very reliable because it is from a university library and that is where I find all my sources for my English 103 classes.

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: I used to love the Google contextual mini-browser (the Google Deskbar - 2003), something probably most people today have never seen nor have a memory of, but which in my humble opinion, was one of the best and most useful tools released by Google ever.

 

Well the little mini-search tool is back in a new customized format inside the Google Docs Presentation tool, where you can now easily search for reference, quotes, information and images related to the topic you are working on in your presentation.

 

Search becomes contextual and the relevant information found can be immediately integrated into the work we are creating. (Any information or image you find with the Google Research Tool can be intuitively selected and dragged onto the slide area, where it can be sized and positioned in any way you like.)

 

Each content item found with the Google Research Tool and utilized in your slide content is automatically linked back to its original source to simplify the credit and attribution process.

 

Extremely useful. Especially for quotes and images.
