Wikipedia: Can You Use it For Your Essays?

I wish I had read this blog post back in school, I possibly would have had more motivation to study and write epic essays. Oh well, I hope it helps those who are still writing essays!

what I sometimes use is google has an option to show articles of academical research papers, stuff like that. you still need to look at what type of source it has but often this is a good way to find relevant or recent articles that give you sometimes very interesting information.

Btw guys in my uni I had to write an essay and I found it a nightmare to find references and stuff that weren’t hidden behind a paywall, wikipedia articles can actually be pretty useful so read the blog post children

ngl i’m… kind of a snob (i say, like it’s not obvious) and in most cases, i am sorta against the use of wikipedia
yeah it has information, but it doesn’t have enough information for my tastes
that said, checking the sources listed on a wikipedia page is pretty good
also, if anyone wants a search engine for academic papers i heavily recommend jstor! it has soooo many articles
and last time i checked you can read them for free!
