Introduction

When locating sources for your aquatic locomotion lab assignment, you will need to:

  1. Know what you're looking for (primary scientific research articles, within the last 10 years)
  2. Create a search strategy (brainstorm keywords/search terms)
  3. Know where to go to use that strategy (article databases)
  4. Know how to revise your search strategy (try multiple searches, combine different keywords, different databases)
  5. Obtain the full text of the article
  6. Have a strategy for reading your sources
  7. Know when and how to cite your sources properly
