Sources are an inevitable part of research paper writing. It is used for reference, information sourcing and to support the stated theory. Research paper sources come in various types and categories. Having a good grasp of the types of sources and the difference in its uses will be helpful while looking for suitable ones for your research paper.
One type of categorization used for classifying sources is that of the medium of documentation. There are text sources or hard copy sources and there are also internet sources. Some assignment guidelines put restrictions on the use of these two types of sources. For example, some guidelines specify the use of a certain number of internet sources and text sources. And some other assignments forbid the use of internet sources. Hence you should always remember to check the guidelines on the sources, before making your choice.
You will also find another type of sources called the tertiary sources, which comprise of indexes of articles and similar lists which help locate the primary or secondary source. The tertiary sources will not be able to be of any direct help in your research. It can only be used to locate the main sources and for the same reason a tertiary source is never mentioned in citations. Even the bibliographical reference page of your own research paper can be classified as a tertiary source as it will direct the reader to the primary and secondary sources.
Only by knowing the various types of sources and the difference between each of them, will you be able to follow the guidelines on the sources. And without appropriate sources you will not be able to complete your research paper successfully. The guidelines on research paper sources are also aimed at testing your understanding of the sources. So choose wisely if you are aiming at preparing an outstanding research paper.
