The following guides can also help you develop and organize quality research papers in international relations and related courses:
Citation Guide-- a brief guide to citation rules with links to other sources for identifying or creating the proper way to cite materials you have used in developing your research papers.
Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery -- maybe not for IR210, but eventually, you will come across a source while searching for information that the USC Libraries does not own or have access to. This guide describes a free service where you can request books, journal articles, research reports, government documents, audio-visual resources, and other materials not owned or otherwise unavailable from USC.
Organizing Your Social Sciences Research Paper-- provides a comprehensive overview on how to write a college-level research paper in the social and behavioral sciences as well as offers advice about how to manage specific types of assignments.
RefWorks-- RefWorks is a Web-based citation manager similar to EndNote. As you conduct literature reviews for papers, this system will be an effective way to store and manage the sources you find.
Statistics and Data-- a guide to sources of numeric information in the social sciences available through the USC Libraries and on the Internet. International Relations doesn't just rely on text-based sources of information but scholars also use data and statistics to analyze research problems.
