    • Speech Communications Course
      • Before you begin to look for information, it is helpful to consider when and how information is published.
      • The following short video from Penn State illustrates this concept:
      • Information Cycle
      • Event occurs - newspapers, news websites, radio and television broadcasts, social networks.
      • Week or so later - popular magazines and other sources of news analysis.
      • Month later - professional magazines and more in-depth news reports and analyses.
      • Several months later - articles appearing in professional journals and conference proceedings.
      • Year(s) later - books, government reports and articles in scholarly peer-reviewed journals
      • What are some other examples of events that illustrate the information cycle?
      • September 11 Attacks
      • Hurricanes Katrina & Wilma
      • Obama election – Nov 2008
      • Today - Obama’s inauguration & presidency
