Once you have been chosen the topic for your essay, analyzed and brainstormed it, you can proceed to the next stage – literature research. No matter what subject you will be writing an essay on, it is likely that your essays and term papers will be based on literature research. If you are not familiar with it, there is a brief description of what it is and how it can help you with writing great essays and term papers.
First thing you should do is to search for relevant information based on the analysis you have made and use the key words you have come up with in the brainstorming process. First place for finding useful information is a library, but if you will not be able to find something relevant, go online and look for information there.
Look and evaluate the materials you have found. If the information looks interesting, make some notes or save the source to be able to come back to it later. Make necessary references along the way, because if you will leave it for later, you will spend a lot of your time simply to look for the info.
A well written literature reference list will be of great help, as you can easily include them into the completed work. Besides that, a list that includes recent works can positively influence your final grade, as it will show your persistence and diligence.
