Evaluating Special Education Research Guide: Finding Articles from a Reference Page

Finding Articles from a Reference Page

LEARN TO MINE YOUR RESOURCES 

Resource mining is an essential practice. It involves looking at the references of a paper and seeing if the sources cited in the paper can be of value to your own research. 

As you read articles--pay attention to the sections that you find most interesting. Take a note of who is being cited. Find the reference and look for it using Google Scholar.
