Searching for information is perhaps the most lengthy step of the research process. There are many sources available and a variety of sources should be consulted. Sole reliance on one type of resource (i.e. Internet sources) is not good research practice. A good research paper incorporates different types of sources (i.e. periodical literature, encyclopedias, books, videos, statistical information, Internet sources, etc.) and demonstrates that an effective information search has been conducted.
