How do I elaborate sources of information used in part 1? I can’t find any credible references that explain the benefits of certain sources like business periodicals or trade associations.
You need to consider the reliability, validity and lack of bias of the sources that you use. This means looking for reputable sources [quality journals and newspapers that pride themselves on their high standard of journalism], countering company sources with more independent information [to deal with potential bias] and ensuring that information presented does not contain ‘sweeping statements’ but is backed up by references from reliable sources [rather than anonymous articles and blogs].
You need to recognise that a degree is about researching and thinking for yourself and you cannot expect to find answers presented on a plate for you simply to serve yourself – you have to work thinks out for yourself by doing adequate research, assembling the evidence and drawing concusions yourself from what you find.
