Your question didn’t seem clear. So, I have edited it for enhanced clarity. Also, there may be two aspects to your question, and so, am responding to both.
- How web-based resources can be of help to a research scholar: There are several types of web resources for academics and scientists. These include search engines, sites, databases, blogs, podcasts, forums, and groups. These can help researchers in various ways: keeping updated about your field, learning about a topic of interest, gathering information for research (such as for a literature review or for references and citations), finding answers to queries (as on this forum), and connecting with other researchers. You need to identify the right resource based on your need.
