Conducting original research is a great challenge and you can enhance your analytical skills, while a secondary research is simply a repetition of others’ work, like someone eats a regurgitated meal, you will not learn much by conducting a secondary research, or cut and paste other’s work. However, no one’s research is built from nothing. All original researches are based on the human knowledge cumulated in the past thousands of years. You can cite or quote any in your review of literature part. Please see my sample article on Canvas.
