Writing an Undergraduate Paper with a Scientific Topic?

Academic Search Complete (EBSCO) should be quite adequate for finding articles related to a subject for most undergraduate work, however, if you prefer, the library has a large selection of databases available for your use. 

Some tips for writing your paper using Academic Search Complete (EBSCO)

1.  Start with magazine and newspaper articles.

     a.  Use the Advanced Search option to search for your topic in Academic Search Complete (EBSCO)

     b.  Limit your results (left column, Source Types) to magazines and newspapers

     c.  Limit those results (left column, Publication) to titles you know (Discover Magazine, New York Times, etc.)

2.  Read about your subject in the above magazines and books and then, if necessary, extend your search to academic journal articles (still using Academic Search Complete).

Don't forget to create a bibliography to cite your sources!
