We all have a lot of research ideas but are unsure about how to carry it on, which one to move forward with, will you be able to publish it or is this research topic even valid?
Hang on! I’m here.
Single answer for all the questions.
“Skimming through the journals.”
When you start skimming through the articles being published in various journals, you get an idea of what ideas will be accepted for publishing, what resources are enough. Once you see them you will be able to understand that nothing is unfit for research, as long as it’s unique. You need to subscribe to the journals, to read them more often. Subscribing to the journals while you are a student is expensive, yet there are few journals which are free for online subscriptions. I have compiled a list of such subscription links for Ophthalmology, Optometry and Vision Science research. You can open the link and enter your email address, consequently get email alerts for the articles they publish.
