Wondering how to get started on your research paper? No worries! Your first challenge is to choose an interesting topic, and then focus in on the most fascinating angle.
Pro-Tip: Start with Academic Search Complete
Use Academic Search to search for articles on specific angles for your Cause & Effect research paper. For example, if your topic is "Texting while Driving", use the search box to find popular or scholarly articles on "Texting while Driving", along with your angle, such as a "Texting Ban" or the role of "alcohol".
Use Opposing Viewpoints to search for controversial articles on specific angles for your research paper. For example, if your topic is "Environmental Impact of Tourism", use the search box to find different points of view on Eco-Tourism. Looking at both sides of a topic makes whatever side you take even stronger, because you can argue a more balanced point of view.
Pro-Tip: Choose Browse Issues to choose from legit hundreds of topics.
Looking for credible statistics? Use Statista for fast, compelling statistics to cite in your paper. Statistics on 60,000 topics in just a click of a button!
Did you know you can copy and paste citations if you use the library's databases?
1. Save time - look for the "Cite" Button or " " icon.
2. Scroll to the style you need (MLA, APA)
3. Copy and paste the full citation into your paper
Ta Da! You're done! Well, almost. Sometimes weird formatting issues happen, so always double check your work.

Working on your Annotated Bibliography? We can help!
An annotation is super simple - basically, it's a few sentences about the kind of source you're using. Our friends at the OWL have some awesome, detailed tips!
An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following.
For more help, see our handout on paraphrasing sources.
For more help, see our handouts on evaluating resources.
Your annotated bibliography may include some of these, all of these, or even others. If you're doing this for a class, you should get specific guidelines from your instructor.
