You will need to find a current popular article that discusses any species of animal (found in Kingdom Animalia) and based on a peer-reviewed scientific study. The article should have been written in 2021 or 2022. It is helpful if the popular news article references a study. This will help in finding the scientific article.
If you are set on focusing on a specific animal, there are a couple of ways to find a popular article:
- A quick Google search that includes the type of animal and add science or scientists or research. (i.e., panda AND science)
- Once the results are returned, limit by year. Click on Tools (near the end of the search bar).
- Then click on Any Time to set a custom range.
- You can also use the database Academic Search Complete.
- You can find this database under the A-Z Database list on the library homepage.
- Enter the animal you'd like to research.
- Once the results are returned, limit by year AND magazine.
