Hello. I am trying to find sources for a paper I have to write. It is on Bernard Courtois, the discoverer of Iodine. My professor would like a few different sources for this including a book, Journal, and a newspaper/magazine. I am having trouble finding useable sources. Thanks.

When you are seeking sources you want them to be academic or peer reviewed. This means that you must be careful not to use internet sources such as Wikipedia as these sources can be edited by anyone and the information within them may not be accurate. One of the primary search engines is Proquest.

When you use the search engine Proquest you will find the newspaper article entitled “What Would the World Be without Ziplock Bags” by Connie Sokol;  this newspaper article explores how iodine has made major health and safety improvements that we take for granted possible.

When you professor states that they would like for you to use a journal this means a peer reviewed academic journal, you can locate these through your schools library and search for them online. For example Google Documents has a peer reviewed article on iodine entitled Tracing Iodine.

You can also find several books on Benard Courtois as he is a well-known scientific figure. For example The Bernard Courtois Biography which can be located at Bookrags.com.
