In the previous article (Part 1
I had promised that I would show you the powerful of free resources as
thesis reference. In the first post, I revealed how to get journal for
free, in “PART 2”, I’ll keep revealing to get journal, even thesis for
free. As a professor, student, or researcher, we will to surround
ourselves with a good journal articles and thesis. They’re very
important in class discussions, reports, case studies and thesis. While
there are plenty of sources available to get journal articles, they are
often costly. The cheapest can cost around $30. If we are researching
our topic, it’s not really practical to pay $30 for each article. This
post is going to show how to find free, yet high quality, journal
articles. It’s important that we have a clear idea of our topic. What’s
your study about? What are the keywords that you might use in order to
find related literature review? Having the keywords ready can help you
find what you need much faster.
The literature review purposes:
- To summarize and evaluate the existing knowledge on a particular topic (Basic LR)
- To know what has been known or unknown/researched in order to identify the research gap.
- To uncover a research problem for further study (Advanced LR)
- To question the current state of knowledge about a topic in order to define an area for new research.
Having the keywords ready can help you
find what you need much faster. Based on my experience, some relevant
sites you may consider to get thesis for free:
