Some pointers:

  • Before writing, spend a lot of time reading background information sources. This will help you create a conceptual map relevant as background for doing very focused scholarly literature searching.
  • While your research will involve scholarly materials, you may find popular articles useful in identifying newsworthy research for which you can find the scholarly journals in which it was disclosed. (Caveat: much valuable scientific research is not newsworthy!) Also, you can use popular articles--if they're responsibly written--as a source of background information.
