Q: Where can I find reading material on the topic of my research?
I'm writing a research paper on continuing professional development and teacher effectiveness. I want to read more about this topic.
If you are writing a research paper on a particular topic, you will have to conduct a literature search, that is, extensively read existing published papers on your area of research. You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles on your topic on Google Scholar. Using relevant keywords, you can come up with articles on your topic. You can also look for articles on your topic on the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and SCOPUS.
