Information Timeline

Recognizing that information is published according to a media timeline can be an important factor in research.  Newly discovered information won't be in printed book format or scholarly/professional  journals for quite a while.

The day of an event: information is found on the radio, television, Internet.

In a few days: information is found on the radio, television, Internet, and in newspapers (begin to use article databases).

In a few weeks: information is found on radio, television, Internet, in newspapers, and in weekly magazines (update citations from article databases).

The months after:  add trade magazines and scholarly journals to the list of information sources (citations from article databases can be limited to peer-reviewed/refereed publications).

A year and beyond after: in-depth analysis in scholarly journals, books, and conference proceedings are appearing (citations in library catalogs can be added to the article listings).
