Sourcing for good references
4) Read and summarise
Read your books. Go back to your original summary of the Wikipedia page and start fleshing it out with new information from your books. Be careful to keep track of your sources.
5) Ask an expert
If you happen to know someone or if there is a volcanology society in your university, go and have a chat to see if you’ve missed something vital.
Otherwise, you can also search for online societies. If there’s a Facebook discussion page or Pininterest group, check that out too.
6) Check the news
Look through The Star online archives to see if there are any news items of interest. Then check aggregate news services like Google News. Put in all your keywords: earthquakes, seismism and tectonic plates.
7) Check Google Scholar again
Look for new papers with the latest findings by the best authors or the hottest subjects. Use this to finish your paper.
