How to find a full-text article?

Hello, Young Researchers!

I’m back with another interesting article. When someone is starting their career in research, the most common research block they would face was finding a full-text article. It might seem very simple to the experienced persons, but a nightmare to the young students. I felt the same when I was doing a literature review for the graduation project. Hence I thought this topic would be of immense help to the young researchers.

Worried about selecting a graduation project?

I have seen students doing a literature review over and over on multiple topics and remain undecided when they have to pinpoint a single topic. This is not because of a lack of interest or focus but due to overthinking. They are too worried that they think of multiple things. But while working on multiple things, their way of thinking becomes too broad and they will be confused. I have also seen students waiting for the inspiration to select a topic and for most of the students, inspiration is the anxiety before one day of topic submission to their supervisor. So here are a few suggestions to select a graduation project.

Future in Optometry

Are you into Optometry?

I have been a small-town girl till my Intermediate and had joined Optometry because I couldn’t get into MBBS like many other students. My family saw this as a better opportunity than a common degree or a paid MBBS.
