While traditional peer-reviewed journal content remains a staple resource for researchers, a recent ProQuest survey indicates that research and teaching is informed by a diverse mix of content types. Newspapers and news content, the data revealed, form a vital part of content needs, used by nearly three fourths of the 410 researchers who responded to the survey. An even greater number of researchers, who also teach recommend newspapers to their students, indicating the value of newspapers for undergraduate research.
