Understanding professional historical research

If you’re a history blogger or Youtuber, you’ll know that locating professional historical research is a difficult and time consuming task. Finding reliable, up to date scholarly sources on a given historical topic is a serious challenge. I’ve collected a list of freely available primary and secondary sources for this.

It’s no wonder that many history Youtube videos are only 10-15 minutes long, present superficial pop-history treatments of their subject, and don’t list their sources. This is how you end up being roasted by commenters on your own videos, or featured on r/badhistory as an object of ridicule.

If you want to do proper research using reliable academic sources, you can save yourself a lot of time and effort by consulting the bibliographies of scholarly literature I have curated here.
