The Information Timeline
Remember that the requirements of your assignment will dictate your topic. If you are required to use peer-reviewed sources, then consider the Information Timeline and when scholarly sources appear. Issues that are of the moment may not work for a topic since they may not have existed long enough for scholarly sources to appear.
And what do we mean when we say something is scholarly? We mean it's been peer-reviewed!
