-- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced. "Conducting research for scholarly projects has been made much easier by academic search engines like Knobull. When tasked with writing projects or dissertations, students can now easily access credible information from online databases without commercial clutter.
For authors to publish credible sources, they are required to verify their information through links and citations. Mere personal opinions without proper, factual backup are not admissible. This makes sources entirely credible and authoritative because you can verify the facts from their original sources."
Scholarly articles discuss and outline the merits of other explanations and viewpoints which are in contrast to their views. They do not seek to justify their own opinions and conclusions as the only credible truths, but rather acknowledge the contrasting opinions as credible too and then clarify why they draw different conclusions.
Authors of academic sources are required to provide proof that supports their claims by referencing the basic research completed. This helps you access the truth, and you can draw your own conclusions if you don't agree with the authors. They come with several research options, which helps widen your scope. In contrast, search engines like Google rank results based on payment from the provider of the results received.
Academic search allow you to explore both quantitative and qualitative research, for optimum results. With both, you can analyze statistical data, opinions, verbal data, etc. This gives you a wider range of information to work with, and you can, therefore, perform comprehensive research from academic sources.
Search results from Knobull come from 5 billion academic sources and promote active reading and provoke deep thinking. They offer a wealth of knowledge which comes critiqued and forces you to critique it also. When you're presented with so many facts in one single source, you're prompted to seek out their sources to verify whether they're true.
Bentley concluded, "Due to the high-quality information contained in academic search engine sources, researchers are enriched with facts and truths. You're bound to get rave ratings from your instructors if used for your scholarly research."
