Scholars are already losing the limited access to the core academic research, as for students, the academic journals are crucial to the research or the understanding of fine details, an overall picture of everything they research. Yet, the scholars often run into various barriers while they are trying to research, which forces them to settle for what they can get access to, rather than what they need more. We mean to say that because of the lack of accuracy in researching the scholars find it difficult to access relevant information available.
But, you don’t have to worry anymore, as we have come up with a solution to this problem. The scholars are required to sharpen their research skills with a more accurate way of researching. We will help you conduct an accurate research as the video will help you learn the skills wherein you can narrow down the focus of your research, so as to give you more accurate and relevant regards.
We have tried explaining, three different research strategies, which are usually used with the help of the keywords;
- Boolean: Works on three main operators AND, OR, NOT
- Truncation: The main operators are (*) and (?), they are usually placed at the end of the keywords.
- Wild Card: The main operators are (*) and (?), but unlike truncation, they are placed in between the words. This is basically aimed at identifying all different spellings or permutations or combination of words.
Finally, you can limit your research by search limiters, in order to make it more relevant. A scholar can choose a full-text article or they can search for an updated article on setting a date. Moreover, you even have an option of choosing your language of research wherein you will get the articles in the language chosen by you. We at My Assignment Services have experts who are thorough with the various research skills, as their expertise allows them to write a high-quality assignment.
