Using Websites

Websites can be a powerful way to research current developments in physics, from seeing the websites of current researchers (and their topics of research) to videos that explain how to solve physics problems.  Check the box below for examples of different websites that might help you research.

Keep in mind that you'll want to evaluate all information you find carefully.  Need help figuring out how to separate the good from the bad?  Check out our guide to Source Evaluation.
