ENSP 102: Introduction to Environmental Policy

course guide for ensp 102

As you conduct your research, you will need to make note of the additional resources (book, book chapter, journal article) you identify in the bibliographies, references, notes and footnotes of the sources you are using. The reason for this? Because this is one of the best ways to further your research.

Example:

Let's say you found this article: 

Fry, M. m., Brannstrom, C. m., & Murphy, T. m. (2015). How Dallas became frack free: hydrocarbon governance under neoliberalism. Environment & Planning A, 47(12), 2591-2608.

 And you read it and it is just great for your research. The next thing to do is look at the list of references and follow-up on any that look relevant. This is a great way to build your bibliography, to find like materials.

If the article is really great for your research, and you have checked the references used by the author/s, you can look and see if the article has been cited by anyone else since it was published. 
This is the  original relevant article:

Fry, M. m., Brannstrom, C. m., & Murphy, T. m. (2015). How Dallas became frack free: hydrocarbon governance under neoliberalism. Environment & Planning A, 47(12), 2591-2608.
There are several ways to see who has cited the article, but one of the best and easiest ways is to use 
Google Scholar. (https://scholar.google.com/)
If off-campus - use google scholar as a database.

Once in google scholar, type/paste in the title of the original article.
