Internet as a source of research

Internet is a great medium of information. Researchers are starting to find that most of the material they require can be gained from the Internet itself. That is why they use the Internet as the starting point for collecting all the information they need. They move on to other sources only when they have exhausted this option. This source even comes in useful when students wish to gauge if they can successfully work on a topic or not. Information on the Internet can even point the researchers to primary sources of data that they can collect later.
