It’s very important to read many research paper ,before starting a project
I will recommend you Google Scholar (scholar.google.com) is an excellent search tool for free and non-free papers. Often, the abstracts are available for free even if the paper is not, and for people searching just “scientific” papers rather than a specific field the abstract may be all you need.
We used it alot during our final year project and it’s very helpful
All the best
