Transcript of Research in the 21st Century

Research in the 21st Century How has research changed in the 21st century? Books 1. Is the book relevant to my research?

2. Is the book from an authoritative source? Ensure the author is an expert in the field or the book is produced by a reputable organization.

3. Is the book accurate? Check that the arguments are supported with evidence - citations.

4. Is the book still current? Check the date of publication, check that it is the latest edition, and that it considers any important recent developments.
1. Is the website relevant to my research?

2. Is the website from an authoritative source? Ensure the author is an expert in the field or the website is produced by a reputable organization.

3. Is the website accurate? Check that the arguments are supported with evidence - citations.

4. Is the website still current? Check the date of publication, check that it is the latest edition, and that it considers any important recent developments. Conducting a simple [Google] search Entering Keywords:
Type subject keywords into the search box and press 'enter' or hit 'search' button.
Combining Keywords:
Google searches for ALL the words that you enter in the search box.
Example: If you type in 'What is child poverty?', Google will search for all pages that contain the words What AND is AND child AND poverty Phrase Search:
By placing quotes around a set of words, you are telling Google to consider the exact words in that exact order without any change.
Google already uses the order and the fact that the words are together, so the use of quotes may limit a search.
Example: "Alexander Bell" may limit pages that refer to Alexander G. Bell. Internet Search within a Specific Site:
Google allows you to specify that your results must come from a given site.
Example: topic site:.gov - results will only generate government websites.

Iraq site:nytimes.com will return pages about Iraq but only from nytimes.com.

Iraq site:.gov will return results from a .gov domain

Iraq site:.iq will return results only from Iraqi sites.

Iraq site:.edu will return results from a .edu domain What is a Domain Name?
Domain Name System, or DNS, is the most recognized system for assigning addresses to Internet web servers, or "Internet hosts".

Domain name is NOT the same as a URL: a domain name is part of a larger Internet address called a "URL"

Examples:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/19/books/19potter.html

http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~hsdept/chsi.html What is a Domain Extension?
.com: commercial
.net: network
.edu: education
.k12: schools (American Revolution k12)
.gov: government
.org: organization
.mobi: mobile (reserved for websites built for easy viewing on mobile devices)
.biz: business websites Domain Extensions for Countries:
When searching for info on Web, you can specify the country the pages derive from.

www.martinlutherking.org

Search domain at: http://www.easywhois.com/

Linked Information: Try to validate information by discovering the pattern of links that point to any Web page.
In Google type - Link:martin luther king.org

**Links can tell:
How the information on a Web site is being used.
What judgement other people are making about the site.
Who the people are who have chosen the site as a source and their motives.
Are they using the site to distort the context of information?

Building a pattern of links coming into a site does not tell you if any given information is right or wrong, but is does allow you to gain perspective (November, 2010). Who is the Author? Give Credit when Credit is Due Searching for Media, Images, and other Content on the Web Creative Commons
