    Only just decided my topic and I already want to die, there's so much work.

    On an unrelated note - what's the stance on referencing Newspaper articles? I mean, I know you can. But if someone referenced say, The Daily Mail?

    You should ask your uni or a lecturer in your particular study on their own rules for referencing as each uni is different in what they regard as substantial references and less trustworthy references.

    My university do it the other way round - we do the literature review, the abstract, the methodology and the introduction, and then we do the research and analysis.
