I’m currently pursuing my PhD and my research project is about how the diet of people can affect the heart problems. I have decided to read existing research works in this field and i have thought of taking help from the nutritionists in designing diet charts.
I have to give a proposal to my mentor so, i am collecting the existing research papers. I can’t seem to narrow down the secondary resources I should include in the review, i am confused whether i should include a large number of resources available on the internet or not.
I thought going through journal would be easier but it was all the more confusing. I am having a really tough time. Pls suggest me some papers that would go with my research area.
A secondary source is a source that doesn’t give original and firsthand data.
secondary sources are composed after primary sources.
Research synopses detailed in books, magazines, and daily papers are viewed as secondary sources. They typically provide global descriptions of results with few details on the methodology. Different cases of secondary sources incorporate histories and basic investigations of an author’s work.
I found these papers online related to your research topic. From them, you will have an idea about the secondary sources and How they are used in a paper?
