Comp 132 (Bost): Secondary Sources

Secondary Sources

Definition:

"Secondary Sources are research reports that use primary data to solve research problems, written for scholarly and professional audiences. Researchers [that’s you] read them to keep up with their field and use what they read to frame problems of their own by disputing other researchers’ conclusions or questioning their methods” (Booth, Colomb, and Williams 69).

Examples:

  • Academic articles about your graphic novel or its creator
  • Popular reviews of the graphic novel
  • Academic articles about relevant topics
