Helping you research | easy access to professional scholarly literature

Formerly a university research assistant I’m now an associate lecturer, though not in history; I have a Masters degree in information management. When making my videos and other content, I rely on research from professional peer reviewed, scholarly literature.

I use professional academic bibliographies and citation indexes such as Scopus, PubMed, and Google Scholar to look for the scholarly consensus on the topics I investigate, weighing carefully any challenges to that consensus.

I always provide my sources in both my videos and my written articles, so you can always see where I’m getting my information from, check if I’m citing them accurately, and assess their reliability for yourself.

One of the perks available on my Patreon page is the option to ask me to check a source such as a book, journal article, blog post, or video, for reliability. I’ll produce a single page report PDF which looks like this image, and include links to any relevant videos I’ve made.
