You can use search engines, online resources, and books to research the topic. Also, it’s crucial to fact-check and ensure that the information is accurate before writing.

    Agree! Additionally, I think you have to make yourself familiarize with the topic first. Immerse yourself with the topic until you have at least enough knowledge about it, this way you will also be able to put your own insights in your content.

    These are great tips! I would also like to add that you first must get the basics of your topic. It is helpful to learn first about the basics before diving into the other things as jargon and certain concepts may confuse you. You can also ask acquaintances who are in the field for reliable resources since they are more familiar with what you are researching about. ☺️

    To research and write about unfamiliar topics, start by gathering general information, narrow your focus, delve deeper with focused research, develop a structure or outline, fill knowledge gaps with further research, use authoritative sources, practice critical analysis, seek expert opinions or interviews, use effective writing techniques, and revise and edit your work for clarity and coherence.
