    Hi, quick question about referencing!I am really struggling to have a variety of different references in an assignment that I am doing. Do references have to be a certain type of quality? What I mean is could I use revisionworld.com as a reference? I know exactly what I want to talk about, but getting a reference to cover what I have said is proving to be very difficult!(P.S Sorry if I have put this in the wrong place!)

    You got it backwards. You should read the literature first, then write afterwards. Otherwise, you are just subjecting yourself to confirmation bias.

    Yes I understand! Good point! Is revisionworld.com a good reference or would you shy away from those type of references in your work?
