Researching,
Remember,

Look at the bibliographies of relevant, key articles.
These often lead to other relevant items, and often be a good guideline about how much you have read on your topic.

Look at review articles.
These often provide detailed coverage of the literature of a topic.
Online Library databases often contain “peer-reviewed” search options:
.edu:
An educational institution’s website. However, each institution is responsible for monitoring its own website information. Institutions generally require login for proprietary resources (such as the Online Library).

.
gov:


A governmental website. Great for statistics. Validated by the government.

.org:
An organization’s website (often for non-profits). Use with caution. The American Psychological Association’s website (www.apa.org) is a .org. Wikipedia is also a .org.

.com:


A commercial website. Use with caution. Does the website include sources? Is it clear who is responsible for the website and who you can contact about th
e website?
