Abstract

They’ll do a database search, and they will invariably choose the first five articles in the list. Doesn’t matter if they’re good or bad, relevant or not.

They use the Web for everything. They have no idea that there are better sources out there to use.

They want to find that one article that’s going to write their paper for them. They don’t realize that they have to read and synthesize and then put their ideas together from several sources.

Their professor suggests a particular journal and when they come into the library, that’s the only journal they want. It has to be that very one.
