    • How to Distinguish Between
      Primary
      Secondary
      Tertiary
      Literature
    • Primary Sources
      Source material that is closest to the information.
      A source with direct personal knowledge of the events being described. It serves as an original source of information about the topic. A person with direct knowledge of a situation, or a document created by such a person.
      E.G. Case Reports, Clinical Trials, Original reporting articles…1st person
    • Secondary Sources
      Cite, comment on, or build upon primary sources.
      Involve generalization, analysis, synthesis, interpretation, or evaluation of the original information. If an article discusses old documents to derive a new conclusion, it is considered to be a primary source for the new conclusion
      E.G. Review Articles,meta-analysis [most peer review articles report new findings and thus are considered primary resources]
    • Tertiary Sources
      More peripheral
      Bibliographies, library catalogs, directories, reading lists and survey articles.
      Compilation of data…E.G. encyclopedias, handbooks
      Longer lead time in publishing…..
