Research Tips

This LibGuide will help you write a paper on your topic.

Questions to ask during the research process:

1. What do I need to know about my topic? An overview or review article usually contains a good  description or definition. Once you have a thorough understanding of the topic, it is time to search for more detailed information.

2. When was the information written?  Note the publication date; is it timely enough for your topic? If necessary, scan recent articles to see if there are updates.

3. How in depth need I go? Use the appropriate resource to answer your research question.

4. Use appropriate search terms.
