Chapter Summary

Reviewing commentary and analysis early in the research process accomplish many key tasks, such as: getting an introduction or overview of a topic, often with citations to other sources and relevant laws and regulations; familiarizing yourself with terms of art, acronyms, and other vocabulary within your topic; verifying or learning pieces of information, such dates or names; and learning about new legal developments. International, foreign, and comparative law and related commentaries are growing at an amazing rate. Many bibliographic databases and online catalogs use standard Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). Locating journal articles is an important part of international, foreign and comparative legal research. The desire to access working and research papers, reports, and other publications in the social sciences has grown with increased availability of scholarly publishing on the Web. Working paper collections provide a good source for commentary on new and fast developing topics.
