Why Use Introductory Resources?
If you have a topic in mind for your research, it is a good idea to find one or more sources of background information to read.
Introductory resources will:
- Explain in general terms, what is currently known about your topic
- Help you understand the broader context of your research.
Getting Started with your Research
The research for your ECN370 Research Project requires that you do research that is both broad and deep. Because you will be doing a lot of researcn, be sure to save your citation information as you go, so that your biblilography in Chicago Style will be easy to create.
Once you have decided on your developing Country:
- look at the Countries tab to get a sense of some of the basic country information that is availalbe
- start reading the Economist (current and back issues) searching with your Country name
- search our databases (I suggest using the Discover! tool) to look articles on your country, its economic system---and remember to limit to scholarly articles
- look for statistics to validate your work
- Be sure that you capture all the relevant citation information needed for citing in Chicago Style
