Im not asking you to do it. Im asking for help finding articles, because since the last product I was given had no real research or journal articles on it I am down to a dead line. I am not asking you to write my four page paper it does not say that anywhere in my post does it?

Oh, you have two posts...

Yes, part of your homework and paper writing is RESEARCHING your topic. If you couldn't find anything two weeks ago you should of switched your topic.

Take a deep breath, don't get so snippy, and you'll probably get better results. SlideStop is right, you have to research for a research paper. Exhaust all of your university's resources and pull an all-nighter if you have to, and don't rely on strangers on the internet for your homework that you were assigned two weeks ago. Check if there are articles before you decide upon a topic next time.

Good luck, and drink some coffee.

Go to google. That's what anyone who would put in the effort would be doing for you anyway.

To find peer-reviewed journal articles (i.e., those whose authors meet academic research standards and have been published) use scholar.google.com.

Find one relevant article, read the intro/lit review to get a quick summary of the research on the topic, and then go to the reference section to find additional articles on the topic cited by the articles.

Anything you can't access for free as a linked PDF, go find the online version of the journal on your university's library site. As everyone has said, YOU need to do the research, but these are general tips for finding quality published findings.

EliRose, I am trying not to be snippy, I have seen other threads where people on here ask for help on homework and get it. And apparently slidestop did not read my post back to her or my other post. I was assigned the paper two weeks ago, but due to the 5 other papers due this week I did not get a chance to start this one until friday the 15th. And also I have looked at all of the journal data bases there is NOTHING on this supplement, I was hoping that maybe someone on here had access to something I do not or that they may have had magazines that are not included in our data bases. Our school is a primarily agricultural school but seems to not have very many data bases that include articles on horses. I was just asking for a little help, I am taking 21 credit hours, working a part time job, and working at the barn here every day of the week. But apparently the horse people I grew up with, that would help a fellow equestrian, don't exist anymore.

You have ADD/ADHD and are taking 21 credits?! I couldn't handle that course load and I only have a mild case of dyslexia!

I think there is something you need to learn, its called balancing your time. With 21 credit hours, working and horses you going to have to figure something out. Put them in a triangle and pick two. You can have horses and work, sacrificing school. You can have horses and school and sacrifice work. You get it?

There is a BIG difference in helping someone and doing it for them. If you came here and asked if we had any personal experience with the supplement, cool. If you asked if we had seen it in a magazine, cool. But no one here should be doing your homework.

Let this be a lesson to you. If you can't find articles on google or the database, its going to be HARD to write about. I've learned the hard way too. Now I sacrifice an more interesting topic for one a bit more boring, but at least I can find something to fill 5+ pages!

You have plenty of people in the same boat you are in. I go to nursing school full time, work to jobs and have eased up horses, though they are still part of my life. I also have a serious girlfriend and babysit most weekends. Your not alone.

I understand and certainly hear your frustration, but I am short of being amazed that you can't find any relevant information by way of Google. My job is virtually based on researching a vast array of items and I can find anything on the net. Even some things I don't want to find. :)
No offense, but the time you are spending here could be used for actual research.

My best to you
