consumers of scholarly research are attempting to prove their point, or their agenda, they seek out well respected sources to solidify the swaying of opinions readers may have about their research. Conducting actual research can be referred to as research to contribute, as the consumer is taking part in the hands-on research, exploring information and piecing together items to prove a theory.

reporting quality, review articles published in throwaway journals have characteristics that appeal to physician readers.” (Rochon). Surprisingly, in a peer reviewed article, it was found that even research literature without highly reputable academic sources are enjoyed and read by researchers and individuals seeking informative sources.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
