Strategic Communication: News and More

When to use news and facts/statistics

For academic writing, you'll usually incorporate news and facts as supplemental sources. To research and publish academic work usually takes years, so you will not likely find scholarly books or articles on current issues. News, government, and other credible sources can help bridge this gap. Facts and statistics, such as polls or company information, can also supplement academic sources as appropriate. You might also use news articles as the content for your own original research, perhaps by conducting a content analysis.
