Hi guys so I need to use references for the sampling method I've chosen to write about but I can't find any sources that are relevant. I've been looking on Google Scholar for any references regarding advantages and disadvantages for sampling methods but I just can't find anything?? I need at least one reference for advantages and one for disadvantages..

Where else can I look? How can I find these? Thanks!

There are many research text books, so I'm sure you can find relevant stuff in another one in your uni library

What is the sampling method used? your probably not using the right search terms to find papers.

Outline your method. In future, choose your method, substantiated by sources, then apply it. Rather than apply it, and post-rationalise.

Look for academic journals that have used the same method as yourself. They may critique the methods used in their paper, thus allowing you to reference their paper in yours.
