Research Process Overview

The research process typically includes five broad steps. Most often you complete one step before moving onto the next. However, there may be times when you will need to return to a previous step or complete multiple steps simultaneously.

Step 1. Develop a Topic
Use reference resources, course readings, and conversation with professors and fellow students to zero in on a topic of interest to you.

Step 2. Locate information
Use library resources to find books and articles relevant to your topic.

Step 3. Evaluate and analyze information and sources
Assess whether the information you've located is current, relevant, authoritative, accurage, and right for your research purpose.

Step 4. Use, organize and communicate information 
Use paraphrasing and notetaking strategies to synthesize your sources and your own ideas.

Step 5. Complies with legal, ethical and moral standards
Make sure you're not plagiarizing by citing your sources using the right citation style.
