The Research Cycle

1. Develop a Topic

Start your research by doing some background research first. The library and your syllabus have many resources to get you started.

2. Find Sources

Now that you have selected your topic, it's time to begin your research. When finding sources, keep in mind your assignment requirements. 

3. Search Effectively

After you have selected your sources, implement your new research skills to narrow your search. 

4. Writing and Citing

Time to put all your work together! Make your case by properly citing your sources.
