Your topic will not only change, it will also confuse you. That is natural. That confusion is the state that follows from being immersed in a topic for long periods of time. I often remember the start of the PhD, eager to tell everyone what my PhD was about. By the time I reached my second year, that was the topic I was hoping to avoid in any conversation. I was too confused to be able to offer a concise answer to the innocent question “ What is your PhD about? ” It helped to realise that many other PhD students also felt that way. It was the process of realisation that I was not yet an expert.
This list is by no means complete! I’ve concentrated on sharing some of the larger, more subject-diverse resources that help scholars find current research. Have you discovered other online sources for new research, maybe focused in your own subject area? If so, please share them in the Comment field. And be sure to visit public and/or academic libraries in your area to do more comprehensive research. They offer access to subscription research databases that aren’t available free online, and the librarians are standing by to help you use them!
